Bison has been removed from Chapter 5 recently. This prevents me from 
fixing a Coreutils bug with the following patch:


The reason is that the patch modifies the gedtade.y file, and the 
Makefile wants to generate getdate.c from it. There are two possible 

1) Patch the generated file:


2) Install Bison in Chapter 5.

I prefer (2) since patching generated files is not a good idea in general.
