I'm suggesting a patch file downloadable from your site which they
would apply with 'patch< file' and then just use the released version
of bison to build things. That is, IMO, much simpler than what you're
proposing.  There is no cvs or new version of bison involved.

There are no patches.  Just download from ftp.gnu.org.
