According to Longuet JeanCharles on 5/20/2008 12:47 AM:
| Forget my previous question. Documentation states how parsing works :
| "[...]In other words, the resulting text from a macro call will be read
and parsed into tokens again."
| I wrongly though that m4 restarted parsing after the output result.

Glad to hear the manual cleared your question.  Yes, it is a common m4
idiom to include empty quotes after macro invocations to ensure separation
of the macro's expansion with the next macro.

| The 'make test' issue is still there, may I help in some way to solve it ?

I'll answer separately, since it affects the bug-gnulib list as well.

Please ensure that future mails on this subject omit this trailer; perhaps
by opening up a free web-based email rather than going through your
employer's mail.  It is an unenforceable disclaimer by virtue of the fact
that you posted to a publicly archived mailing list; however, some people
refuse, on principle, to answer such mail.
