Just a total stab in the dark: I've seen similar errors when trying to
build other projects with a too old version of m4.  Unfortunately, I
believe the version of m4 in the ubuntu repo falls into this category.
I would try building the latest version of m4 from source and trying
again with that.  I also seem to remember that simply putting it in your
path isn't good enough and that you have to set an environment variable
(M4=/path/to/m4, I believe).  If this works, stick a comment in the
README file saying what the lowest required version of m4 is.  If this
doesn't work, then I don't really think I can help you.  I don't have
time to play with the source, at the moment.

Hope that helps, though.  :-)
