My environment is on Sun-Machine (Solaris8-SPARC-IIe)

I have already done following:
-        "/usr/local/bin/" is in PATH environment variable

Is it first?

- Made also separate environment variable (export M4="/usr/local/bin/m4")
-        Installed M4 before installation of autoconfig

Furthermore I have also installed following packages
autoconfig, automake, bison, lex, libiconv, libtool, sed and M4 in /usr/local/bin [Note: packages were taken from http://www.sunfreeware.com/indexsparc8.html]

But still couldn't able to solve this problem. Maybe some other clue would be helpful. Thanks.

Please make sure to report version of software in bug reports. The version bison-1.875d you get there is an old one.

What happens if you follow the instructions for the latest Bison release,made latest Monday?:

Bison test version 2.0a is now available.  It contains mostly bug
fixes for Bison 2.0.  Our intention is to generate a new official
release soon, based on feedback from this test version.

Here is the URL:


Here is the MD5 checksum:

4304bcadc0115d0eb6c8744f83158a7e  bison-2.0a.tar.gz

To try this test version, please make sure you have GNU m4 1.4.3
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.3.tar.gz> installed, and then execute
the following shell commands or their equivalents:

   wget ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-2.0a.tar.gz
   gunzip <bison-2.0a.tar.gz | tar xf -
   cd bison-2.0a
   make check

We particularly appreciate tests on unusual hosts.
