Re: problems installing sendmail

If you are running the apt in slink on a sun4c, upgrade to the one in
potato pronto. There are pthreads issues on sun4c, and the potato apt
works around it.

As for your problem, it really looks like m4 is segfaulting, since
updatedb appears to be a script, and not a program. Try running "m4"
by itself, and see what happens. If it segfaults, then do me a favor and
install strace, then run this command:

strace -o m4.out m4

Then send me the m4.out file created by strace.
