Subject: ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of GNU m4 1.4.4 uploaded.

This is a port of GNU m4 1.4.4 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

  DJGPP specific changes.

  - There are no DJGPP specific changes compared with the previous port.
  - The distributed source package has been configured for stock djdev203.
    If you want to compile the sources using djdev204 you will need to recon-
    figure the packages deleting the file /djgpp/config.cache and running the
    command /djgpp/xp-config.bat. This batch file will take care that the
    distributed popen.c from the cvs tree is used for producing the binary
    instead of the brocken one from libc.a included in djdev204.
  - If you need to reconfigure the package for use with stock djdev203, then
    you must delete /djgpp/config.cache and run the command /djgpp/config.bat.

  As usual, my changes and the rest of the djgpp specific stuff is stored in
  the /djgpp subdir.

  The port has been configured, compiled and tested on a Win98SE and MSDOS 6.22
  system using stock djdev203. It has also been compiled and tested on WinXP
  using djdev204.
  It should be noticed that if no LFN support is available the following tests
  will fail:
    30.include, 51.eval, 56.errprint and 57.m4exit
  Note that tests which check M4 diagnostics will always fail, because they
  make too many assumptions about how the error messages printed to stderr
  look like and also due to some LFN issues that are not worth to be fixed.
  In other words, this failures are expected to happen if LFN is not available
  and are *not* a bug of the port.

  For futher information about GNU m4 please read the info docs and NEWS file.

  The port consists of the usual three packages that can be downloaded from and mirrors as (timestamp 2005-10-28):

  For the convenience of the WinXP users binaries compiled with djdev204
