 Take the ticket and any other LFS ones you want to work on that I assigned
 to myself. Any time I have coming up will be on BLFS until a release can
 be put together.

 As for minimum version, I've never tested it. The comment in the
 support/aclocal.m4 says bison-1.26. Could be a very outdated comment,


 The other thing to think about is that the depencency on bison is only
 introduced if one of the *.y files is changed. I haven't checked whether
 that's the case with the bash-3.2 patches.

 But, you never know when these things will creep up. Same thing with
 patched *.l files and flex. Which is why I mentioned adding bison _and_
 flex to the host requirements. It's up to you which direction to go.
