here is what works (or, rather, does not) for me:
cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/clisp login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/clisp co -P clisp
cd clisp
>>> modify src/m4/clisp.m4 to call m4_toupper
make -f Makefile.devel check-configures

it hangs on this command:
aclocal --output=src/aclocal.m4 -I /home/sds/src/clisp/current/src/m4 \
                 -I /home/sds/src/clisp/current/src/glm4  -I 
/home/sds/src/clisp/current/modules/regexp/glm4  -I 
/home/sds/src/clisp/current/modules/syscalls/glm4  -I 

note that I have a fully updated ubuntu, i.e.:

autoconf 2.63-2ubuntu1
automake 1:1.10.2-0ubuntu3.09.04
m4 1.4.11-1

I won't.

We have preferences. You have biases. They have prejudices.
