Both of these build OOTB, provided you follow a few simple guidelines.

Looks like you are using a native build of m4, instead of the MSYS 
build -- the above error is definitively symptomatic of precisely 
that.  You *must* install, and use the m4-1.4.7 build for MSYS; you 
*must* also use the MSYS build of perl.  In addition to this, you 
must *not* configure and build in the source directory.

Please search the archives of both this list, and of MinGW-Users; I've 
already dealt with this issue, at some length, on more than one 
occasion in the past year or so.
