I know, that's my only argument against
bison-1.875{a,b}. Coz it may 
start an argument about including other alpha.gnu
software.

The other option is to use a "sanitized" (where only
the diffs of the .c 
files is taken into account) is used. I ran a diff
y'day and it is 
possible, if someone doesn't get to it till the
weekend, I can make one. 
There are also patches for bison at 
<http://bugs.linuxfromscratch.org/show_bug.cgi?id=536>
but don't know 
whether it fixes OO compilation.

Another less appealing option is to downgrade to
bison-1.75 till the 
next official bison is released.
