--- Comment #2 from Tom Tromey <tromey at sourceware dot org> ---
gdb requires a "recent enough" version of either bison or byacc,
because at least one parser in gdb has to be "pure" (aka reentrant).
So, a plain POSIX yacc isn't supported.

Normally, I believe, gdb releases are done such that the end user
doesn't need bison.  However, if you are building out of git, you do.

Given this, I'm going to close this bug as invalid.
Thank you.
