I still don't have a working Seamonkey on my FreeBSD 12.3!
The guy who's been trying to build it for me says his most recent
"attempt didn't work because the version of SM uses and[sic]
autoconfig.m4 file, where FreeBSD doesn't support m4."

We've tried various versions of rust.(I note ports/packages now
have 1.63 but "rustup" has 1.64 as its default).

In the meantime both Firefox and Firefox-usr have become broken
because of XPCOM issues as a result of the attempts to get Seamonkey
going...XPCOM doesn't load with them either and attempts to deinstall/
reinstall from ports or delete/install with pkg don't produce working
versions.

It must support m4, it's part of the autotools and needed to build most
anything that uses configure.
SM does need (unless it has changed, haven't built any recent versions)
autoconf213 and if he is trying with a recent autoconf, I'd guess weird
errors.
You might need export AUTOCONF=/path/to/autoconf213 or such in your
environment

The unable to load XPCOM error is a generic error caused by a missing or
the wrong version of a library.
Are there tools to see what the dependencies of a binary are?

m4 is part of the base system. Years ago I used it for sendmail.
Simply try ``man m4ยดยด.

It appears that it is simply not finding
/usr/local/share/autoconf2.13/autoconf.m4
which does exist.
Does a more recent autoconf also being in /usr/local/share
confuse things?

FWIW, on a FreeBSD 13.1 system, I find:

/usr/local/share/autoconf2.71/autoconf/autoconf.m4

so there's an extra "autoconf/" to get to autoconf.m4 compared to
what you have above, but since you say the file exists, maybe
things changed between 2.13 and 2.71.

/usr/local/bin/autoconf is the short POSIX shell script:
----------
#! /bin/sh
${DEFAULT_AUTOCONF:+exec "$0${DEFAULT_AUTOCONF}" "$@"}
c=$(ls -d "$0"[0-9]* 2>/dev/null | sort -Vr | head -n1)
exec "${c:?$0: not installed}" "$@"
----------

That script appears to list the /usr/local/share/autoconf[0-9]*
directories and take the one that sorts the highest. If 2.13
does that, too, then the answer to:

> Does a more recent autoconf also being in /usr/local/share
> confuse things?

is likely yes. It looks like it would be simple enough to create your
own version of the shell script that avoids the sort and just uses
/usr/local/share/autoconf2.13/ .

It appears so. I'm on OS/2, our libc was ported from freebsd to build
Mozilla and autoconf213 likewise. I installed with yum/rpm.
I have /usr/share/autoconf213 which contains all the *.m4 files plus the
other ac* scripts with /usr/bin/autoconf213 having this line about line 38,
: ${AC_MACRODIR="${AC_PREFIX-/@unixroot/usr}/share/autoconf213"}
: ${M4=m4.exe}

note that @unixroot expands to a drive letter here as we're multi-root
Perhaps something similar would support both autoconf's being installed
in /usr/local

Apparently autoconf.m4f was in a misnamed directory...
I NOW HAVE A WORKING SEAMONKEY 2.53.14 running with my FreeBSD 12.3

Is libxul.so involved for you?

My system does have libxul.so in /usr/local/lib/firefox, so it's
there in the firefox mix somewhere. However "ldd ./libxul.so" does
not list libldap60.so (or any libldap version) as a dependancy.

Well,with latest attempts to start Firefox a window does come up,
but it's non-responsive...two tabs are shown
about:sessionrestore
and
New Tab
but the screen is vacant and gray below,nothing loads...
trying to use the address bar gets a menu of recent sites
but attempting to select one does not load it,and any attempt
to use any tab gets the window from which I launched firefox&
filling with repetitions of

Assertion failure
assert@resource:///modules/AsyncTabSwitcher.jsm:500:36
preActions@resource:///modules/AsyncTabSwitcher.jsm:567:10
handleEvent@resource:///modules/AsyncTabSwitcher.jsm:1089:12

For whatever that's worth!

These apparently follow quickly on a complaint about sys/bus/pci
and two of lacking libnss.so.3 and an associated program...the
same old "couldn't load XPCOM" XPCOMGlueLoad errors.
