Which version of m4 do you have installed?  Is
/mtg/tool/powerpc-AIX5.2/bin/m4 something you built yourself?  I doubt
this is a manifestation of bugs reported on some platforms when using m4
1.4.10, but I'm asking anyway.

Also, this particular test depends on kill.  Perhaps your system kill
doesn't send the expected SIGINT to the shell?  But then we'd expect a
skip.  I certainly can't reproduce things, so I'm not quite sure what to
suggest trying next.

A word of advice: it is considered poor netiquette to send mail with such
disclaimers to publicly archived mailing lists, since it is rendered
unenforceable.  Some people still refuse to reply to such disclaimers on
principle.  You might want to consider using a separate email account to
avoid your employer's addition.
