If you're using GNU make, a simple "make" should suffice.  Yes,
even when you're modifying a .m4 file.

In fact, you shouldn't use autoreconf within the Automake source tree,
and that's because automake's own build system can use some features
that are present only in the developement version of automake and
aclocal (and autoreconf uses installed versions of those tools by
default).  If you need a clean rebuild, you should use the `bootstrap'
script that comes with the automake distribution.
This is the idiom I myself use when in need of a clean rebuild:
  $ ./bootstrap
  $ eval "./configure $(./config.status --config)"
  $ make all
