help with compiling m4

help with compiling m4
hey, so I'm probably really overlooking something very simple, but I can't figure out how to build m4 due to there not being a configure script.  I'm looking at https://www.gnu.org/software/m4/m4.html, I did this command 


Code:
git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/m4


this command failed 


Code:
git checkout -b branch-1.4 origin/branch-1.4

but whatever, I have the m4 dir, but there is no "configure" script in there.  there is a "bootstrap" script but it fails with  "Illegal option -- -"

I looked at mrthinlysliced didbs github page and it looks like he had a configure script - what step am I missing here?  sorry for the newbness...

The tarball at https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/ has a configure script. Use that instead of the github repo
