app/xdm - autoreconf - possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE

While compiling the app/xdm/ I get the following error during autoreconf 
process: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

I search for this error cause in the Autoconf info page and in google, 
but don't find any reasonable answer why this is happening.

I try to use the m4_pattern_allow macro but do not have success in this. 
I try to put the m4_pattern_allow this way:

AC_CHECK_FUNC(mkstemp, m4_pattern_allow (AC_DEFINE(HAS_MKSTEMP,1,
    [Define to 1 if you have the 'mkstemp' function.])))

I also try to put m4_pattern_allow (AC_DEFINE) above this:
    [Define to 1 if you have the 'mkstemp' function.]))

but this doesn't work...

Anyone know how to resolve this and way this is happening?
