I'm afraid you'll have to look into what autoreconf is doing.  Bison's
bootstrap routine does not invoke gzip or tar itself.  I am suspicious
of that 'autoreconf-2.5x' message; we assume Autoconf 2.59.

Actually, we often do.  We used to do it the way you suggest, and it
was more of a maintenance hassle for us.
