autoconf make error - [m4sugar.m4f]

spidercharm

I am getting the following error on m4 while making autoconf. I have followed all the steps and even retried installing mingw & msys multiple times to make sure I didn't miss anything. I know similar issue was posted here earlier. But, I did not see any working solution posted. I also searched through all the mailing lists - nothing helped. I am newbie at this - so please be gentle.

I am following steps from: mingw-msys

Please help - I have been trying this for more than 20 hours now. Thanks in advance.
