Sending private mails is less likely to get anything resolved in an open
source community, so I am adding relevant lists in on the discussion.

GNU M4 relies on POSIX behavior in the stdio library in order to comply
with POSIX requirements on its own behavior.  True, GNU M4 does not yet
fully comply with POSIX, but I am working on enhancing it to do so.  If
you are unwilling to fix NetBSD's fflush to comply with POSIX, then you
should not complain that gnulib is doing the job on your behalf.  If
gnulib's approach does not work on DragonFly, you are welcome to patch
either DragonFly to comply with POSIX, or submit a patch to gnulib so that
gnulib's approach will work on DragonFly.  But without even describing why
things don't work for you, or reporting your complaint to a list where
people could make a difference, then we have no way of helping your situation.
