Actually, `missing' only `exit 0's when the program exited with a
success code.  Otherwise it will fall through and perform various
actions depending on the argument to --run.

One of the things it does is verify that the requested executable exists
and that it is a GNU application.  This is what caught us - the script
was assuming that any GNU program is good and therefore that its failure
meant a real failure.  I added a new bison wrapper based on missing to
handle the version check.  Let me know if it doesn't work for you.

This problem should go away when we start using Automake 1.10 since it
won't allow Yacc targets to be built without the
--enable-maintainer-mode argument to configure.
