Problem with yacc rebuild rules

I'm having a problem building the Gnulib getdate module as part of CVS
when building in a directory other than the source directory:

                test -f getdate.c || /bin/sh 
/u/scjones/cvs-nightly/build-aux/ylwrap /u/scjones/cvs-nightly/lib/getdate.y 
y.tab.c getdate.c y.tab.h getdate.h y.output getdate.output -- bison -y  
        /u/scjones/cvs-nightly/build-aux/ylwrap[111]: bison:  not found.
        *** Error exit code 1

The problem is that getdate.c does exist, but over in $(srcdir), not in
the current directory.  I'm not sure whether the problem is in
automake's yacc.am, Gnulib's use of it, CVS's use of the Gnulib module,
or some combination.  Anyone care to point fingers?  :-)
