This is not the first time that this is reported. The question is why 
the configure script doesn't report some error if the m4 found in the 
path is not GNU m4, which is required.

Perhaps somebody who is knowledgeable about configure scripts can 
investigate this and provide some appropriate patch (test for GNU m4) so 
that Solaris users do not experience such compilation errors.
