That was actually 'export YACC=' ;-) It's the grammar parser building that
causes problems on some systems. It seems that some yacc's have a very
limited parse stack :-(

Unfortunately setting YACC will have no effect in build.jam, as it attempts
to find yacc or bison automatically. So I guess the best solution is to not
sttempt using yacc in Solaris. Is bison available in Solaris?
