This one comes up fairly often, but I just checked the FAQ and 
surprisingly it wasn't mentioned (or I missed it).

IIRC, you need Bison and probably the associated development package too 
- depending on your host. Have you checked your host meets the necessary 
requirements? here: 



Apologies for the delay.

Rounding up the bison and putting them in the machine cured it.
I do not know how I missed its absence but I have changed computers as the first time I found the computer too slow.

Thank you for your prompt help.
