19.3 How Can I Bootstrap?
If Autoconf requires GNU M4 and GNU M4 has an Autoconf
`configure' script, how do I bootstrap? It seems like a chicken
and egg problem!
This is a misunderstanding. Although GNU M4 does come with a
`configure' script produced by Autoconf, Autoconf is not required in
order to run the script and install GNU M4. Autoconf is only required
if you want to change the M4 `configure' script, which few people have
to do (mainly its maintainer).
