Oh, I see what you mean. You could probably do it yourself; I think that
the Flex distribution
ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/GNU/non-gnu/flex/flex-2.5.4a.tar.gz has a script
doing something like that.

You have to wait and see what Akim Demaille says, who is developing Bison
right now.

However, I persuaded Akim to implement dynamically computed #line numbers,
because it often happens that one has to edit the skeleton files on local
platforms, for different languages (C/C++), etc. This also makes it easier
to make use of several different skeleton files in the future.

So this is a direction opposite of what you are asking for.

But as it already exists in Flex, what you are asking for would not be
difficult to implement.

Why do you want the feature?
