Hi Jeffrey,

It is used to indicate where, at runtime, the bison-runtime's .mo files
can be found.

This would lead to a duplication of these .mo files. There are multiple
packages that use Bison and thus can make use of these .mo files. It would
be a waste of disk space on the end-user's disk if they were installed
in multiple places.

You can also build and install Bison after having installed gettext.
