When I tried to compile OTP P8A (the 20011007 snapshot), I
stumbled on the following error (paths slightly edited by hand):

gcc -g -O2
-Wa,-xarch=v8plusa -Ibeam -Isys/unix -Isparc-sun-solaris2.7
-Izlib -Ihipe -c hipe/hipe_sparc_glue.S -o
m4 -Ibeam -Isys/unix -Isparc-sun-solaris2.7 -Izlib -Ihipe
hipe/hipe_sparc_bifs.m4 > sparc-sun-solaris2.7/hipe_sparc_bifs.S
m4: bad option: -Ibeam
make[3]: *** [sparc-sun-solaris2.7/hipe_sparc_bifs.S] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory

I'm not familiar with m4, but the man page on my machine
(/usr/ccs/bin/m4 on SunOS Release 5.7 Generic_106541-12) mentions
nothing about an -I option. Is there another m4 that I should be
