I tested current development trunk on macOS 12 with Xcode 14.2 (and GNU M4 1.4.19 from Homebrew; on macOS, Autoconf no longer supports use of the system-provided M4 1.4.6) and observed no failures.  If I do not hear from you, or someone else, to the effect that there are still failures on macOS 13 with current GNU M4, by the end of day on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2023, I will presume that the problem is indeed fixed.

This should have been fixed by commit 412166e185c00d6eacbe67dfcb0326f622ec4020.  Please test autoconf 2.72d and report any remaining failures.
