I also encountered this, with a different application, on a Linux system.
Seems not all Linux systems, out-of-the box offer yacc.

As a quick fix, bison with the -y option is equal to yacc. So, quick-fix
the Makefile (change the YACC= line), or define an alias which links yacc
to 'bison -y' and you should be in business (don't know if this works).

Best regards,
