    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    What distribution+version of Linux are you using? Your package manager should have the acl (access control list) package available to install directly, instead of building from source as you seem to be trying to do. In any case, m4 is a sophisticated macro language and is used for a lot of pre-processing steps in software compiilers, etc.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
