The GNU version of m4 is a FreeBSD Port, devel/m4. The base system m4(1) was originally based on BSD 4.4 Lite m4, and then on a modified version from OpenBSD. It is supposed to be standards-compliant, but it does not support all GNU m4 extensions, so it is not used as often as devel/m4 is in Ports. So your package database is probably okay in this regard. b. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
