Re: glibc-2.3.3-51 breaks m4

OK, this is what I was curious about. __P is defined in config.h of m4, but
subsequent headers are pulled in. Some of the glibc headers do an undef of __P
which I think is where the problem lies.

The patch is trivial. I just wanted to know which way this should be fixed. Do
you want to leave glibc in this form or do you want me to file this in bugzilla
with m4's patch?

Thanks for the quick answer.
