I recognize the symptoms but don't have an answer.

The key idea is that things are setup so you don't need bison/yacc to build 
from source unless you are changing the parser.  The output of bison/yacc is 
checked in as source.

I've always been able to blunder through one way or another, but never 
managed to assemble a recipe that works next time.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
