Note that devel/m4 is now broken in DragonFly because of "security fix"
pulled up from HEAD with two days during release. Fixing it is beyond my
knowledge, so please someone have a look.
Even having regular builds doesn't save us from this kind of stuff :(.
Not knowing the intricacies of various m4 implementations, it seems like
we have a GNU mode with '-g'.. is there any reason devel/m4 is really
needed for DragonFly? (e.g. some kind of pkgsrc wrapper makefile could
be used around the system m4 instead?)
I suppose some tools would need to be modified, but for those things
just needing 'gnu' m4 for *builds* ..
just a thought..
