This bison release does not work on FreeBSD 8-STABLE or FreeBSD 9
(development). Spawning processes is broken in the same way as happened
in the latest GNU m4 release. And apparently results from the same bug
in gnulib (that was fixed on 2 March).

This bison release is likely unusable on all non-Linux systems that
define their own posix_spawn() function and defines. The bug does not
affect systems that use the gnulib replacement function.

A patch is attached. I hope this will be in the next release.
