Re: GNU M4 1.4.4b released (beta release)

I tried 1.4.4b on OS/2 and found the following issues:

In checks/Makefile.in a colon is used to prepend ../src to $PATH which
doesn't work because a semicolon is needed on my system. Please, could
you use $(PATH_SEPARATOR) instead which is provided by recent autoconf
version? E.g.:

Test 62.sysval fails. The reason is that m4_sysval() in builtin.c
discards the lowest 8 bits of sysval but on OS/2 system() returns
a value between 0 and 255. 

Please cc all answers directly to me. Thanks.
