At the cost of boring repeat readers, the reason for installing bison is in 
order to be able to install flex so that gcc will not misconfigure on account 
of the lex library being found, even though lex is not present.  This could 
be cured by a better configure script which actually checks for presence of 
lex rather than libl, or by removing libl before running configure, or by 
installing the lex, which is part of the "ANSI C" extra cost development 
package.  I found it more practical to install bison and flex.
