Build errors - bad fd number


After cloning emacs-w3m git repository, I get a bad fd number error.

Output of `autoconf <RET>':

/usr/bin/m4:configure.in:5: non-numeric argument to builtin `substr'
/usr/bin/m4:configure.in:7: non-numeric argument to builtin `substr'

Output of `./configure <RET>':

I'm using:
emacs-26.1; Autoconf version 2.13; m4 macro processor version 1.4.17.

My system is:
3.16.0-7-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.59-1 (2018-10-03) i686 GNU/Linux.

Best wishes,
