I've updated the FSF directory as requested. I don't know how to make the directory search for plain M4; you would have to take that up with -unavailable- yourself. Meanwhile, I'm marking this complete. I'm leaving it open to remind me that when M4 1.9b is released, I should update the web pages to include the example that used to reside at Rene's site (building that example requires 1.4l or greater, and it seems wrong to advertise web pages built with capabilities not present in 1.4.8 until we provide a beta release that does not have the security flaws present in all 1.4[a-z] versions).
