Bison doesn't expect or need any version of flex or yacc, if all you
want to do is run "configure; make; make check; make install".  It is
supposed to work with any C compiler in current use.

Bison doesn't support that, alas.  It would be some work to fix this.
If you have patches in this area by all means please submit them.
