You are very kind in your words... ;)
There are actually 6 of them, not just 4, all identical!
kostis@REDACTED:~/HiPE/otp$ wc `find . -name aclocal.m4`
1905 5931 61331 ./lib/megaco/aclocal.m4
1905 5931 61331 ./lib/wx/aclocal.m4
1905 5931 61331 ./lib/erl_interface/aclocal.m4
1905 5931 61331 ./lib/odbc/aclocal.m4
1905 5931 61331 ./aclocal.m4
1905 5931 61331 ./erts/aclocal.m4
