Thanks. I tested it and it works well for my parsers.

The only annoyances are the known autoblah problems:

- The umask problem with installed directories (last time I said
  it's about $prefix/share/bison, but it's actually all installed
  directories including $prefix/bin etc. if they're newly created --
  I hadn't noticed since they existed before on my system). But now
  I've read something about it and it seems to be a known, wontfix,

- Also well-known for a long time, but just to point out the
  ridiculousness of non-parallelizable configure (and to brag
  about my new CPU :)

  % time ./configure --prefix=/usr
  real    0m18,328s
  user    0m14,747s
  sys     0m2,915s
  % time make -j
  real    0m1,179s
  user    0m13,277s
  sys     0m1,684s

  Clearly, we're long past the point where configure takes longer
  than make -- by now we can actually say that build time is
  negligible in comparison to configure time, even for packages of
  quite some complexity such as Bison. But I know you can't do
  anything about it.
