 This came up recently (probably has a few times).In my mind, this is a
 large bug. I'd prefer to keep the bash patch in Ch. 5 since the shell is
 such an integral part of the build (not just for scripting). Host
 requirements seems the sanest place to put this.

 Now I found the message. Bash says that bison-1.26 minimum is needed. That
 note could be old or bogus, though.


 I'll see about getting this listed in the Host Requirements. Flex should
 probably be there too. Comments, anyone?
