Description:
I'm trying to do a Cygwin build of the bash git repo at bminor/bash on
github.

The configure (no options) and make (no options) finish successfully, but
the build fails when doing $()-style command substitutions, claiming that
the trailing paren is unexpected:

% echo $(echo hiya)
bash: command substitution: line 9: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
bash: command substitution: line 9: `echo hiya)'

This is generally the result of using something other than bison to
generate the parser.
