That's all right; I'm glad to hear it doesn't seem to be a real bug.

Good to know.  At this point, replies can drop bug-gnulib.  Is there also
a standalone kill(1) provided somewhere on PATH?  What do the following do?

$ sh -c 'kill $$'; echo $?
$ sh -c 'env kill $$'; echo $?
$ sh -c 'kill -9 $$'; echo $?
$ sh -c 'env kill -9 $$'; echo $?

If you still want to improve  the behavior of 174.sysval, it might be
worth grabbing an strace (or whatever similar mechanism AIX provides) to
see what system calls the following two m4 runs use:

$ echo 'syscmd(kill -9 $$)sysval' > file
$ m4 file
$ m4 -Dsyscmd='esyscmd($@)' file

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
