Yes, I am using bison-1.75, the version installed as per the LFS CVS 
book. I attempted to search he archives for a bison-1.75 patch but just 
keep getting the main server offline error. What sort of patch is it? 
Why doesn't the book mention it if 1.75 is faulty?

Hmm, now I'm really stuck. I don't wish to start all over and create a 
new LFS if it's going to have the same problem anyway....

This is gonna be one of those days, I just know it... :'(
