Unless I've misunderstood the other posts in the thread, it is not
nmh requiring GNU m4, but autoconf for when you regenerate the configure
script. It is, indeed, the case that GNU autoconf requires GNU m4.

This would be an "issue" for any package where you wanted to regenerate
the configure script, but doing so is not part of a standard build.
