I was playing around with MacPorts on Linux, and there the bzip2 configure script failed because if couldn't find m4. Once I installed port:m4 first (and removed the obsolete 1st hunk from the linux-specific patch), port:bzip2 built.

What surprises me is that I do have /usr/bin/m4 and I suppose that one should have been picked up.

I know Linux isn't really supported (but if base is supposed to work there I have another issue to report) which is one reason I didn't file a ticket.
