Does the M4 package need to be identified as a "host requirement"?

Hi all,

Best I can tell the GMP package needs M4 to build successfully.
This can be approached in one of two ways:

1. Build M4 before building GMP in Chapter 5 (in fact it may
be needed to be built before GCC pass1 as GMP is built inside
the GCC Pass1 instructions.

2. Add it to the Host Requirements page.

Thoughts from others would be appreciated.
