autom4te: need GNU m4 1.4 or later: /usr/local/bin/m4

Could this be a problem with trying to find a program with a trailing CR in the name (that is, looking for m4\r instead of m4)? Also, are you setting the M4 environment variable?

I don't have an MSYS setup, so I'm not sure how easy it would be for me to reproduce this.
