A point of ambiguity just occurred to me. What are relative file names relative to? For --skeleton, I think it's the current working directory.
For %skeleton, it seems like the grammar file directory, so that would
have to be prepended.

When I checked it (the right way) in 2.3a, there seems to be no difference: they are always relative the /usr/local/share/bison/ directory in my installation. There, I want a way to make it relative the directory 'bison' was invoked.

I propose:

1. If the file name does not contain `/', prepend `pkgdatadir/'.
2. If it does, don't.

So this might suffice for that. But what if one writes
  %skeleton "my/"
Would one not expect it to work like
  %skeleton ""
but checking in the subdirectory "my"?

(My, you are a patient guy!  :-)

Well, these discussions usually do prove useful.

And these seemingly silly little details are used rather intuitively, making important to set them correctly. :-)
