           Summary: bison unnecessarily required as build dependency

support/dependencies.sh requires that bison is installed on the host system.

This is unnecessary for packages that use bison, because buildroot supports to
depend on a host-bison.

The only other usage is in the kconfig build, but kconfig builds successfully
without bison before dependencies.sh is run. 

Suggested solution:
Remove bison from support/dependencies.sh
