Hi Kim,

Can you see this error with the same package on another system ?

On OpenBSD, the trace errors are usually due to the implementation of M4 used.
Autoconf requires GNU m4, but the OpenBSD folks have hacked it to use
OpenBSD M4 instead.  This yields some corner cases problems (however those
I remember involve the M4 macro "include", which is not the case here).

I suggest you reconfigure Autoconf to use GNU M4 if that's easy,
or simply reinstall these two package from their GNU sources.

(In case you wonder why I'm not mentioning Automake, here
Automake is calling Autoconf which is in turn calling M4 in
"trace mode".)
