m4 is a general purpose text processing program/language.  It's not
specific to C or gcc, nor is it part of make; it's just a regular
command.  I'd be surprised if there existed a linux distro or unix
vendor in the world that didn't have a m4 package that you can select to
install, as it's a standard unix tool going back decades.  But this is
way off-topic for this list.
