I think it should try to use the system yacc if it can't find bison.
It is possible to build our grammar with non-bison yaccs, since we
aren't using any bison-only features (not true for lex/flex,

Persuading the local yacc to enlarge its tables enough to accept our
grammar is an exercise for the user ;-).  I have some notes about
making HPUX's yacc work in FAQ_HPUX.

But our distro should certainly use bison to build the derived files.
You used to have bison on, what happened to it?
