Sign-off for m4-1.3.13-1. Upstream update. Removed the texinfo dep
(through check in install function) and compressed info pages.
* Noteworthy changes in Version 1.4.13 (2009-04-01) [stable]
Released by Eric Blake, based on git version 1.4.12.*
** The manual is now distributed under the terms of FDL 1.3.
** The `divert' and `undivert' builtins have been made more efficient
when using temporary files for large diversions.
** The `translit' builtin has been made more efficient when the second
argument is short.
** The input engine has been optimized for faster processing.
** The command line option `--debugfile', introduced in 1.4.7, now
treats its argument as optional, in order to allow setting the debug
output back to stderr when used without an argument; and order is now
significant with respect to command line files. You must therefore use
`m4 --debugfile=trace file', not `m4 file --debugfile trace'. This
change does not affect the deprecated `-o'/`--error-output' option.
** The `syscmd' and `esyscmd' builtins can be configured to use an
alternate shell, via the new `configure' option `--with-syscmd-shell'.
** A number of portability improvements inherited from gnulib.
