    buildworld - Attempt to fix m4 bootstrapping issue
    * Set the M4 environment variable to force the buildworld to use the
      bootstrap version of M4 in all passes.  This removes the need to
      manually build/install the m4 binary due to the recent major tools
    * Force build ordering for some of the bootstrap utilities, particularly
      the m4 binary, so the binary is available to help build other bootstrap
      tools later on.
