For the newlib footprint format each footprint is indeed an own file,
and generally newlib is recommended.

For oldlib/m4 footprints are generated at the fly by calling macros -- I
think it it mentioned in the wilson tutorial and maybe in the PCB
documentation. I have only used m4 when I started with PCB years ago,
now i am using only newlib, have forgotten all about m4, sorry.
