Huh? Autoconf's doc says:

 -- Macro: AC_PROG_YACC
     If `bison' is found, set output variable `YACC' to `bison -y'.
     Otherwise, if `byacc' is found, set `YACC' to `byacc'.  Otherwise
     set `YACC' to `yacc'.

Really I don't see a difference between the situations for bison, gperf, and
gaa. All three are development tools needed by the maintainer but not needed
for users of a tarball. All three are not among the set of tools required
by 'configure'.

The only difference I see is the immediate reference to the download location
in the gaa macro, but this is what an INSTALL or DEPENDENCIES file is good for,
