Would this be m4 1.4.7, or a CVS build (either head or branch-1_4)?
Although I'm guessing it is the release tarball.  Would you like me to
give you an off-list URL to my latest release candidate for 1.4.8, and
give that a run on NSK before I finalize 1.4.8?  The snapshot will have
up-to-date gnulib files, so whatever has been fixed in gnulib with regards
to long long will automatically be picked up; 1.4.7 was released before
you started reporting the horrendous behavior of NSK.

Here, the snapshot may have already solved this as well, as I rearranged
the order of the platform detection macros due to another bug against 1.4.7.
