This still would prevent the GNU m4 test suite from producing a test failure
for the aforementioned m4-1.4.19 regression (because the English locale
has less variation regarding the decimal separator than the whole set
of possible locales).


How about this idea instead? Have the GNUmakefile code run the 'locale' command and include its output in the 'make' output. That way, the 'make' transcript would indicate this particular detail of the test environment.
