I can't tell for sure without seeing the grammar file, but it looks like 
you've encountered another change in Bison 2.4.  That is, previous 
versions of Bison appended semicolons to semantic actions so that users 
could omit the final semicolons and still get the generated code to 
compile.  This was an undocumented and useless feature, and we have 
discussed removing it intentionally in future releases.  However, we 
didn't mean to remove it in Bison 2.4 and are adding it back for 2.4.1.  
Anyway, as long as the webkit developers are fixing things, they might as 
well add the final semicolons to their semantic actions.
