Yes, Automake currently used bison in Automake-compatible mode, but it
would be fair for Automake to switch to the native mode as long as the
processed files are distributed and "missing" emulates bison.

In any case, the makefiles should specify the output file explicitly
instead of relying on weird defaults.

This is not _that_ ugly as it seems - with Automake you want to put
sources where they belong - to the source directory.
