This isn't a bug, per se.  The tarball should be unpacking with a
getdate.c newer than getdate.y, and so make should not attempt to
build it at all.  This might be slightly trickier when working with a
checkout of the repository since it can be hard to specify what order
files are updated in.  You can force the issue by making sure you have
a clean copy of the sources and touching lib/getdate.c before building.

The dev trunk version of Automake has a fix to prevent Lex and Yacc
targets from building (unless missing completely) unless
- --enable-maintainer-mode is passed to configure, which should avoid
the timestamp issue completely in the future for those who don't want
to install Bison, but we are waiting on the 1.10 release of Automake
to install this in CVS and I have no idea when that is going to happen.

If you didn't gather from the above, you could also install Bison on
your Solaris 8 build host to work around this issue.
