Thanks for the report.

This is due to a known POSIX-compliance bug in the kernel/glibc
combination you are using, and has since been worked around in upstream
gnulib.  The next m4 release will not suffer from this test failure.

Meanwhile, you can use the just-built m4 without issues, as it does not
tickle the particular readlink compliance bug.
