I agree with Jim here.  Adding bison back into chapter 5 seems overkill 
for such a minor issue.  We've already set a precedent with 'flex' for 
patching generated files, so I don't see a reason to not do that here. 
Not that I'm advocating putting the patch into LFS anyway - to me it's 
simply too minor to worry about.

Regards,

Matt.
