That's more likely than not these days, yes, but still,
it's not a good sign that this failure occurred the first
time I tried to install Bison.

If it's just examples, then it'd be better if Bison's
'configure' merely issued a warning and then didn't
run the example code on the user side?   Are these
examples extracted from the manual? if so, they can
be done by the person making the tarball too.  The
general idea is to do as much as possible before
generating the tarball, as this makes things easier
on the installer.

Also, suppose some day Flex requires Bison?  :-)
