RE: GNU M4 Install

Yes, this all started as a project to get Apache244 and tomcat 7 to talk to 
each other on Windows 7. Rather than installing a grouped package like xampp I 
decided to install standalone versions. Only issue though is that to get mod_jk 
(the connector), it seemed I would have to build Apache to get AXPS which 
didn't seem it was available in their tarballs. This led to the requirement to 
build apr and apr-util which led to the requirement to build autoconf which 
needs to have M4. (I think I got that straight).

Thanks I will see if I can set up a Linux VM to do the compiling then, worse 
comes to worse I will have to install XAMPP

Why aren't you using the m4 pre-built for cygwin?

Oh, you aren't compiling for cygwin.  You're trying to do a cross-compiler 
build for mingw.  In which case, this is not a cygwin question, but a 
cross-build question related to mingw.

Most likely, this is a situation where no one has ever cross-compiled -
m4 1.4.16 was released before the 64-bit mingw project took off, so while 
modern gnulib may be able to cope with this situation, the version of gnulib 
used at the time of the m4 release obviously does not.  It's been ages since 
I've attempted to do a cross-compile to mingw, but as I need to release m4 
1.4.17 sometime anyways to resolve FTBFS on modern glibc, I'll try and do that 
before making a release.
