Sure. It should be posted on the xorg-devel list for a wider review (I
have limited m4 knowledge).
I can take care of pushing, bumping and versioning. The macros package
must be released before any
other package uses the new macro. 

I looked at the patch and I was a bit confused about exe names and GNU
version or not.
To flush out the functionality, I wrote a new patch so it should be
obvious if I missed something.
I don't think there is anything wrong about your patch, just some
assumptions I cannot verify.
In the patch I attached, it checks for both m4 and gm4 in current PATH
+ /usr/gnu/bin.
That should cover all cases.
