Don’t worry about Bison, a simple #undef FILE_SYSTEM_PREFIX_LEN did what I 
needed (I did not want to go through all the indirect inclusion to sort out 
this issue).  But more importantly, I threw away the patch that needed this, so 
really, Bison is not an issue here.  I just meant to report the incompatibility.
