Building problems with bison-1.34 in GNU/Solaris 8

This is just to report a few problems I found building bison-1.34 in
GNU/Solaris 8. Note that no problem was found with GNU/Linux.

  1. The tests/*.sh files don't have execute rights. This causes `make
     check' to fail:
     FAIL: warning.sh
     /bin/bash: ./khadafy.sh: Permission denied
  2. The Spencer bre test #16 failed on a GNU/ Sun Sparc Solaris 8
     system. I can give you details if you wish.
  3. During `make install' on the same Solaris 8 system, linking egrep
     and fgrep to grep fails because these files already exist from a
     previous version:
     ln -s grep /usr/local/bin/egrep
     ln: `/usr/local/bin/egrep': File exists

These are not severe issues, as everything works fine on GNU/Linux!

However, I can try to help in finding a clean solution to at least the
1/ and 3/ issues, working on the autoconf and automake files, if you
