I had exactly the same problem. Fixed it by changing path to point to
newer bison. Alternatively problem could be avoided by changing path
to get rid of bison.
The problem though that suppose you have broken bison, you are trying
to build, build fails, and jamgram.c deleted. You can't just fix the
path and run build again -- you are forced to start from scratch.
