[adding bug-gnulib, since this affects the gnulib module c-stack]

Thanks for the report.  Was this with libsigsegv installed, and if so,
which version?  I don't have access to a MacOS machine, but I know Bruno
has added recent improvements to libsigsegv that are necessary for correct
operation on newer MacOS versions.

At least this failure only affects the corner case of stack-overflow
conditions.  You can proceed to install and use your m4 version; if you
happen to be unlucky enough to cause a stack overflow with bad input, it
merely means that m4 is more likely to crash instead of exiting with a
nice error message.
