But then the application's Makefile needs changes: -lbison. This is an
annoyance, because
  - "bison -y" is no longer equivalent to YACC, [since YACC doesn't
    create a dependency to a library],
  - so far, libbison would contain nothing of real use.

Can we imagine a way to hint distributors to add the dependency to
bison-runtime without changing the application's Makefile?
