Sorry, I don't see that.  For me, the command

gunzip <bison-2.0.tar.gz | tar tvf - | grep -E '(alloca|getopt|stdbool).*h$'

outputs this:

-rw-r--r-- 0/0            1810 2004-12-19 06:37:54 bison-2.0/lib/alloca_.h
-rw-r--r-- 0/0            7975 2004-11-25 11:43:49 bison-2.0/lib/getopt_.h
-rw-r--r-- 0/0            4792 2004-11-16 18:07:47 bison-2.0/lib/getopt_int.h
-rw-r--r-- 0/0            3442 2003-10-27 06:58:34 bison-2.0/lib/stdbool_.h

so the distribution is using the new names.

Yes, that's a problem, but it's not a showstopper, as skeleton files
are still undocumented internals.  They will possibly change
drastically in future versions.
