Hi there,

On Chapter 5 of LFS 6.1 (actually using nALFS) I hit a problem with Bison. I'd downloaded
source archives as  lfs-packages-6.1.tar and got a failure on ./configure for Bison. There
*was* no ./configure.

The source archive seems to consist only of some executables inside /usr. Also the version
at 
ftp://ftp.aliensoft.org/pub/lfs/conglomeration/bison/bison-2.0.tar.bz2
and every other mirror I looked at.

I downloaded a source archive from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bison and all was well.

Can't find anything on Bugzilla. Is there some sublety I'm missing here?
