Therefore notes should suffice in packages affected by bugs in 1.875, which can be removed later when an updated official release is made.  This is unlike the current gzip/findutils/tar situation where official stable releases haven't been made in ages.
There is a note in the openoffice instructions. Another package that is 
affected by the bison bug is pwlib/openh323 (forgot which one of those).

There are three options (in the order of preference):

   1. Patch bison-1.875 to fix the error.
   2. Downgrade to bison-1.75.
   3. Upgrade to bison-1.875a.
