GNU `m4' is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro processor. It is mostly SVR4 compatible, although it has some extensions (for example, handling more than 9 positional parameters to macros). `m4' also has built-in functions for including files, running shell commands, doing arithmetic, etc. Autoconf needs GNU `m4' for generating `configure' scripts, but not for running them.
I can see what is happening here; you're building the building blocks!
After christmas I hope to be able to release a altered version of libtool, so we can make configure scripts, that are able to make use of a2solib, so we can make shared libraries the easy way (even more easy that now )...
And I also have some other project in mind
