I don't think it's right, because I think that the m4 here is
supposed to refer to the m4 directory in the source tree, not a
system m4 directory.  Your system m4 directory should
automatically be searched for .m4 files.  `aclocal
--print-ac-dir' should print the name of that directory.

Okay, -a is not part of SUSv3.  I've checked in a fix.

I'd be happy to fix this if I could figure out the problem.
Unfortunately there's no & on line 43 of examine.q or on line 46
of factor_stats.h, or nearby, as far as I can tell.  If you can
find the & that this talks about then I'll do my best to correct
