    nesting limit problem


    hi!

    getting this error while building rpm of kdebase mandrake 9.0

    first when i run command

    -> cd /usr/src/RPM/SPECS

    -> rpmbuild -bb --nodeps kdebase.spec

    command goes fine but after some execution i got error like

    *** Creating acinclude.m4
    !!! If you get recursion errors from autoconf, it is advisable to set the
    environment variable M4 to something including "--nesting-limit=500"
    *** Creating list of subdirectories
    *** Creating configure.in
    *** Creating aclocal.m4
    *** Creating configure
    Autoconf requires GNU m4 1.1 or later
    make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.17379 (%build)

    how to set the environment variable M4 to something including "--nesting-limit=500"
