I didn't bump into this problem until installing arts-1.5.9 from BLFS
6.3. Making m4 part of the temporarily toolchain and installing it
after autoconf makes a tool of autoconf called autom4te link to the m4
in /tools instead of a m4 that would be part of a finished system.
Also bison does the same thing. With no m4 in /usr/bin it links itself
against the one in /tools/bin. My suggestion would be to put m4 back
where it was and belongs.
