commit f16b08196c780556cbf50691e2944960aebc46f6

    Update to GPLv3.

$ git tag --contains f16b08196c780556cbf50691e2944960aebc46f6 | head -5

I was unaware that Bison was shipped as part of macOS.  Apple
cannot stand the GPLv3, so there's no surprise they are stuck
with 2.3, and won't change.  Although there's no license on the
generated code.
