The m4/ directory contains some macros already provided in /usr/share/aclocal 
in order for any developper to run or modify Makefile.ams without 
all the .m4 dependencies.
However I'm not convinced this is ideal: this duplicate files and can make 
confusing bugs if the macros in /usr/share/aclocal become incompatible with 
the ones in m4/.
Actually the macros present in m4 are macros I've written (such as exosip.m4), 
and macros automatically installed by gettextize (the command that adds 
gettext support to a package). For those ones this is clearly a black box, I 
don't know how useful they are, I trust gettextize for that.

My preferred policy would be that developpers that wish to run 
install previously all m4 dependencies, and thus do not distribute copies of 
those .m4 in m4/ directory.

Currently the only packages I know they need to be installed to run 
are intltool and gettext (for ubuntu/debian: perhaps they have different 
names on other distribs).

Hope that helps !
