The lack of 64-bit types should not matter for m4 1.4.8, since it does not
use anything bigger than 'long int' outside of gnulib modules (CVS head,
on the other hand, will use u/intmax_t in more places).  So I am going
ahead and releasing m4 1.4.8, even though it will miscompile on old NSK
with -O omitted, rather than waiting for any other changes in gnulib.  It
is a small enough audience that the few people that compile on that
platform should be able to figure out from mailing list archives how to
make compilation work, without too much effort.
