Well, Juan Manuel's patch should cover most everything (provided he
submits a revised patch that addresses my previous remarks).
With it, bison 1.3x should build out-of-the-box with decent DJGPP/DOS
support.  Especially since 1.3x is a dead end, I would not recommend
adding the djgpp-specific support files at this time.

I've been able to configure CVS autoconf on plain DOS without further
patching; I expect the same of bison, but I'll try to get some tests
done this weekend to confirm this.  If that works, and keeps working for
1.49+, no DJGPP-specific support files should be needed at all, thanks
to the new & improved autoconf.
