I've just looked at configure and it searches for byacc and bison
before defaulting to yacc.  You don't have bison either I guess?  I
moved byacc out of the way here and bison worked successfully.  I can't
test AT&T yacc as yacc is really byacc here.

If all three work then isn't it OK to assume the machine compiling the
source will have one of them?

It just seems a bit of a kludge to ship yacc source but not expect it
to be used and to have to keep both the pic, eqn, and refer *.y's and
their *.cc's in step.
