Yes, m4 is required on all platforms.  This is not a change from the previous
Autoconf-based system.

I agree that requiring m4 on Windows (or anywhere for that matter!) is not a
great idea, but that's how it works and I haven't changed it.  Future work.

This sounds like a symptom of commenting out the line that looks for m4.

Did you uncomment the line that locates m4?

You might also try rerunning CMake in a fresh build tree, after having
installed m4.  Does the output of CMake show that it finds m4?  If not, what
does it say?

Thanks for trying this out!
