Removed the build-m4 for native mingw, and added dependency on the mingw m4, in change set http://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/rev/7fb479d0241c

When doing a build of the system, autoconf fails to build with error:

If I delete m4.exe from the usr/bin directory, it builds fine, so is probably really a problem with the new mxe m4 package.

Full log of the autoconf build attached.
