One word: The configure process should of course fail in this moment.
configure.in uses:

AC_PATH_PROGS(M4, gnum4 gm4 m4, m4)

But this sets M4 to 'm4', even if 'm4' was not found in PATH, which is
IMHO a bit senseless, because this test should make *sure*, that the
binary can be found inside PATH. It should better be something like

AC_PATH_PROGS([M4], [gnum4 gm4 m4])
[ -n $M4 ] || AC_MSG_ERROR([m4 is missing on your system.])

To make sure, one of the m4 executables has been found.
