Another maintainer.  Seriously, though, it seems that .*ignore files often 
become a collection grounds for both project-generated files and for developer-
specific files.  Git provides .git/info/excludes (comparable to ~/.cvsignore) 
for a clean separation of developer-specific patterns, rather than forcing all 
users of the repository to ignore files that matched the developer's additional 
files created outside of bootstrap and make.

Nor I, so you can probably get by with an alternative patch that just deletes 
this line altogether, since nothing directly in bison's build process creates 
files by these names.
