worked and all tests passed.  However, it seems to be some 1.4.10
version and my bug was against 1.4.11.  So I took the patch at the end
of your email and applied it by hand to 1.4.11 and tested that also.
That worked and had no test failures too.  I attached the final patch
I used with m4-1.4.11.tar.bz2 to this email.    The context was
different on hunk 1.

    Thank you for the very fast fix!  Please use my full name for
attribution: "John Gatewood Ham".  I have this strange email account
because I am a distribution maintainer and this is the account I use
for that work.

Thank you,
