Yes, I believe this is something that should happen.  In the gettext
package, there's a PACKAGING file that starts with:

But Bison should use a stricter Autoconf check to rule out versions
of libtextstyle that don't support it.  I'll do that eventually.

Meanwhile, disable text styling with configure --without-libtextstyle-prefix.
