1.4.17 build system enables -Werror and wants to enable a warning
called "mudflap". gcc 8.3.0 (Debian 10) doesn't support this warning
anymore. Trying to enable a warning which isn't supported causes a
warning. Hence, m4 1.4.17 can't be built with gcc 8.3.0 because the
warning caused by trying to enable a warning which doesn't exist
anymore is turned into a fatal error by -Werror.
IMHO, it's going to be difficult to come up with a more damning way to
describe the effects of this paranoid, kafkaesque nonsense.
