If someone wanted to volunteer and submit a patch to make bison look
for the share directory via a relative path instead of the precompiled
one, I'd appreciate it.  :-)

We've recently done a fair amount of work to make gcc work without
GCC_EXEC_PREFIX.  Something similar needs to happen for bison although
I suspect it'll be much easier in this case...
