What version of bison are you using?  My log shows:

bison -y -d xftgram.y
xftgram.y:168: warning: previous rule lacks an ending `;'

I use bison-1.35 later versions turn this warning into an error. 
 Alternatively, looking at xftgram.y, it looks like there should be a 
semicolon inserted just before line 168.
