Dear bison developers,

when building bison-1.28 on my Linux 2.4.0/K6, libc5 system
(gcc-2.95.2), I get undefined references to gettext(). Even though
configure seems to find that -lintl is needed, it doesn't add it to
$LIBS or $INTLLLIBS. (I helped myself by inserting `INTLLIBS="-lintl
$INTLLIBS"' into configure manually which is, of course, not a good

checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking whether included gettext is requested... no
checking for libintl.h... yes
checking for gettext in libc... no
checking for bindtextdomain in -lintl... yes
checking for gettext in libintl... checking for gettext in -lintl... yes

(Those last two lines were in fact printed mixed up like this.)

What I actually meant to suggest (installed the current version only
to check it hadn't been done already) is the following:

When I have a large grammar with some number of expected S/R
conflicts and inadvertently introduce another conflict, bison's
output tells me only the total number of conflicts, so I have to
look at the `%expect' line to find out how many of them are new. I
think it would be a little more comfortable if bison gives me this
information directly:
