The error is pretty clear - you don't have the autotools installed (in
particular, automake 1.14), but you touched a file that requires the
autotools to propagate your change back into generated files.

It may be easier to create a new M4 tarball on a machine that has all
the usual GNU tools, then try to build that tarball with your PGI
compiler, than to try and bootstrap your PGI machine up to the point
where it can run the autotools natively.
