Hello Pallav,

Please keep the mailing list in Cc: so others can help/learn as well
(and I don't have to go search for your original post), thanks.

No, it's ok if m4/ is empty (but then you could also remove
it and omit it from listing in and m4 in

I had a vague feeling of deja-vu when I read your first mail, but didn't
know what to look for then.  I've searched a bit now, this may be it:
Do you happen to have extra spaces following the arguments of AC_INIT,
as in
  AC_INIT(package , 1.0 , bug@address)
                 ^     ^
?  Because if you do, please remove them.  M4 only strips the leading
(unquoted) spaces of macro arguments, not the trailing ones.  I think
a package name with such a space can lead to weird failures.

If that was not it, please post, or a link to a tarball of
the package.
