Many thanks for replying.


For following error:


bison -y -d  ./arparse.y

M4sugar requires GNU M4. Install it before installing M4sugar or

set the M4 environment variable to its path name.*** Signal 13

make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `arparse.c'

Current working directory

*** Error code 1

make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-binutils'


My environment is on Sun-Machine (Solaris8-SPARC-IIe) 


I have already done following: 

-        "/usr/local/bin/" is in PATH environment variable

-        Made also separate environment variable (export

-        Installed M4 before installation of autoconfig


Furthermore I have also installed following packages 

autoconfig, automake, bison, lex,  libiconv, libtool, sed and M4 in
/usr/local/bin [Note: packages were taken from


But still couldn't able to solve this problem. Maybe some other clue
would be helpful. Thanks.


Best regards,

>(assuming you are using bash or equivalent).


Or add /usr/local/bin in front of PATH. Often there are some other 

installations one has to when building GNU stuff.
