I would like to know if there is any way to make autoconf (the gnu thing)
work with netbsd-current especially with the netbsd m4. 
Autoconf says it needs m4 version 1.1 (or was it 1.3, in any case
something that gives something back when doing m4 --version).
I did not try yet to make it work with NetBSD m4 but the README 
of autoconf says it maybe makes problems with BSDish m4's.
Is there a good reason to not change to GNU m4(Other than religious ones?)?
