From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

Description of problem:
RH 7.3 does not include a man page for m4 macro processor 
used with sendmail. RH7.2 is not offering also the page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man m4

Actual Results:  $ man m4
No manual entry for m4

Expected Results:  See the man page of m4

Additional info:

This would be nice to have the man page of m4. As well there is bad publicity
from Linux Administration Guide where it is said SUSE and RedHat does not
include the man page of m4. Debian Linux does.

The m4 rpm has GNU info pages available.

Right. If we have info under info I don't see useful to have a duplicate manual
page. Anyway somehow m4 should be under man m4 but because we have GNU m4 info
m4 does the job. 

thank you very much,
