I don't get the problem; I just now did a fresh build from gnulib CVS
and bison CVS as follows:

   cvs -d address@hidden:/cvsroot/gnulib co gnulib
   cvs -d address@hidden:/cvsroot/bison co bison
   cd bison
   ./bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=../gnulib

Does that exact combination work for you (changing "eggert" to "akim")?

There shouldn't be any AM_MKINSTALLDIRS anywhere.  After a bootstrap,
"grep -r AM_MKINSTALLDIRS ." shouldn't output anything.

No.  (I am using Automake 1.9.6.)

Hold on a second.  There shouldn't be an m4/po_gl.m4 anywhere.

Most likely you have an old source tree that hasn't been cleaned out.
All you should have to do is to build everything from scratch; it
should work.
