5.4. M4-1.4.17

The M4 package contains a macro processor.

5.4.1. Installation of M4

M4 is required to build GMP. We will compile and install an m4 program into /cross-tools, so that we have a known-good version which can be used to build GMP, both in Cross-Tools and the Temporary System.

Prepare M4 for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/cross-tools

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install

Details on this package are located in Section 10.9.2, “Contents of M4.”
