Build Identifier:

configure does not properly check for yacc/bison, or at least is does not disable SQL which requires yacc/bison for its parser.
Hence, if there is no yacc/bison configure finishes successfully, but compilation of SQL eventually fails.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. choose a system without yacc/bison
  2. configure MonetDB Mar2011 sources with sql enabled (default)
  3. (try to) compile

Actual Results:

make fails complaining about missing yacc/bison executable

Expected Results:

configure complains about missing yacc/bison and disables sql

I didn't realize that there was an open bug when I tried to fix this, otherwise I would have mentioned the bug number in the message.
Changeset should contain the fix.
