: I could be wrong. But from bfd/Makefile, you should do
: # aclocal
: to update aclocal.m4.
Well that should work, but it turns out that the real problem was a
buggy/extraneous .m4 file in my share/aclocal directory. So this was
being picked up by aclocal and put into the aclocal.m4 file, which was
then processed by autoconf, which resulted in the errors you saw.
Once I had deleted the buggy file and rerun aclocal and autoconf,
everything started working again. I have checked in the fixed files.
Sorry about this. *sigh*
