Still unable to build RTEMS 4.10 for PowerPC under WIN32

When I type m4 --gnu it starts looking for input.

My version of m4 is 1.4.13  (m4 --version). It resides in /bin/m4 (which m4)

When I put together my development systems, I have to move a copy of m4.exe into /bin ( which is /c/msys/1.0/bin) then munge /etc/profile to export PATH=".:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/mingw/bin:$PATH" which will then pick up the copy of m4 that is in /bin before any others.
