Which grammars are these?  Ideally, do you have URLs for the grammars
in question?  We'd like to be compatible if possible.  (Also, which of
'yacc' do you prefer, for these grammars?)

Thanks for the suggestion.  I added this to the TODO list, by
installing the following patch.  I assume you also want the same
option to disable installation of the yacc library.

+Add an option to 'configure' that allows people to install Bison

 * Documentation
 Before releasing, make sure the documentation ("Understanding your
 parser") refers to the current `output' format.
