I am experiencing problems with compiling autoconf and they probably are related to the version of the M4 that I am using. I will put part of the result of running both ./configure as running ./make so someone can confirm is the cause is really that and what I should do to fix it (probably moving to another version of it). If someone wants the full output of any, I will put i.

The M4 version is 1.4.10 and the autoconf is 2.64.

./configure --prefix=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Autoconf-2.64/ --exec-prefix=/media/34GB/Arquivos-de-Programas-Linux/Autoconf-2.64/

checking for GNU M4 that supports accurate traces... /usr/local/bin/m4

checking whether /usr/local/bin/m4 accepts --gnu... no

configure: WARNING: The version of M4 that was found does not support -g.

configure: WARNING: Using it with POSIXLY_CORRECT set may cause problems.

checking how m4 supports trace files... --debugfile
