Hello Paul,

Is "the problems" the handful of bug reports stemming from changed M4
warning output that causes a spurious test suite failure?  If so, I
think the test suite should pass with both 1.4.5 and previous M4
versions, even if they aren't recommended.  And I don't think it's
such a big issue, if you ask me (but maybe I have missed something

Other than that, I'd like to do a test round before a release, and take
a look at the remaining changes; esp. the X rpath one looks a bit
worrying, at a glance, not having had a chance to look any closer yet.

But it's not me to decide, of course.
