M4 will work, but it is not exactly the most intuitive tool out there.

A tool that I have written, Template Manager (or Tm for short), is also
able to do file inclusions, and is quite intuitive to use. All you have
to do is:

.include partone.l
.include parttwo.l

and so on.

File inclusion is only a tiny part of Tm's capabilities; you might also
find uses for its other features.
