Using a combination of the most recent CVS autoreconf, and the
following bootstrap, I have Bison update properly.  Try it.  I hope
the next gettextize will free us from having a bootstrap file.

|     mv -f "$f~" "$f"
|   fi
| done
| rm -f po/Makevars.template
| # Since some files were restored, some files must probably be remade.

| autoreconf --verbose --install

Update autoreconf.  It had the logic wrong.
