m4 is a dependency of bison and will be installed automatically when you
install bison, so no need to install it separately.
There is no "makeinfo" package. It is included in the "texinfo" package.

This happens automatically when you install the gawk package.

build-essential pulls in g++.  It also pulls in the libc6-dev package,
which can cause issues later if you don't have it.  As such, installing g++
separately is unnecessary.
