The bug may happen in the same compiler with other version number, or
in other seemingly-unrelated compilers with entirely different version
numbers.  If the bug is common enough for us to be worried about, we
should test for its presence instead of looking for a particular
compiler name and version number (which would be a neverending task to
keep track of).

It's also conceivable that there is a bug in Bison, not your compiler.
For example, the bug might be a portability problem, which is
manifested on your implementation (with some combination of
compile-time options) but not on other implementations.  If so, we
should fix the Bison bug.
