I had yacc/bison problems when attempting to build the csup port.  I've
previously had issues with install-info/texinfo:

The real issue was that I had changed my path to put /usr/local/(s)bin
before /usr/(s)bin.  I've since changed my path back and everything
works as expected.  I don't even recall why I changed it in the first
place, but it caused some interesting problems...
