Hi Fabian,

Thanks, I downloaded the patch and it  solves the first 2 problems. I now have the M4DIRS variable set and nearly all error messages are gone. There is only one left:

configure.ac:152: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

I googled on this error and there are long of discussion about this, For instance:


It looks like some weird version mismatch which is hard to reproduce and leads to frustrating discussions. I will try to update the MacOS autoconf to a newer version and hope this solves the problem,

Regards, Jan.

This seems to work but triggers a lot of other macro errors. Do I need to copy more m4 files? I also still get the AC_MSG_ERROR macro error,
