Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2003-02-05 23:36:32 UTC
Thanks for pointing this out.  I've fixed it in the most recent PostgreSQL
package  set - postgresql-7.3.2-1.  When I remove bison from my system and try:

rpmbuild  --rebuild postgresql-7.3.2-1.src.rpm

I get:

Installing postgresql-7.3.2-1.src.rpm
error: Failed build dependencies:
        bison is needed by postgresql-7.3.2-1

as expected.  Resolving.
