I think the current Bison is fixed.  Actually I'm not sure it is
`fixed': it was working on all the platforms but yours...  Maybe it
was doing something `illegal', but correct, in the sense that, using
some pointers a bit too far away from their base, it fell in the
undefined gray area of C, but the computation looked correct.

That's one possibility.  The other, more likely, being that your
strndup is broken.

Anyway, the code was hairy, and it _might_ be more readable now.  I
hope it is at least more robust.

In other words, may I ask you to run the test suite of

        http://www.lrde.epita.fr/~akim/download/bison-1.30j.tar.gz (or

on your AIX 4.3 (IIRC, that's the one that fails on the first tests).
