[netCDF #GVA-381074]: m4 error while running configure


The m4 utility is not on your system path; you can validate this by trying to 
run 'm4' from the command line:

    $ m4

I suspect it will tell you that it cannot find m4. You say that you installed 
m4 into '/usr/loca/m4'.  Did you mean '/usr/local/m4'?  Typically, one would 
install the m4 utility into `/usr/local/bin`, which is on the system path.  You 
will need to adjust your system path to reflect the location of the m4 program 
(by adding perhaps /usr/local/m4,h or /usr/local/m4/bin, or /usr/loca/m4; 
whichever is correct).  Alternatively, you could re-install m4 into 
`/usr/local/bin`, which is on the system path by default.

I hope this helps,
