This deserves testsuite exposure, as patched below.

Also, I find it annoying that m4wrap always claims to be in
__file__ NONE and __line__ 0.  I hope to improve that situation
on head when I fix m4wrap to be FIFO, by storing the current
file and line number of where each piece of wrapped text was
captured along with the wrapped text.

        * doc/m4.texinfo (Errprint): Add example for last patch.
        * checks/check-them): Account for VPATH in latest example.
