It seems incorrect to me.  AC_MISSING_PROG is a macro performing a
task (i.e., an instruction), while AC_CHECK_PROGS wants a value as $4
(i.e., an expression).

The point of missing is having the right thing happen even if the
program is missing, so don't bother looking for a Yacc, require Bison:

AM_MISSING_PROG([YACC], [bison -y])
