Thomas, All,

On 2020-05-18 08:26 +0200, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> Our current host-bison installation is not relocatable, so if you
> generate the SDK, and install it in a different location, bison will
> no longer work with failures such as:
> 
> bison: /home/user/buildroot/output/host/share/bison/m4sugar/m4sugar.m4: cannot open: No such file or directory
> 
> This particular issue is already resolved upstream by the addition of
> "relocatable" support, which we enable using --enable-relocatable.
> 
> Once this issue is fixed, a second one pops up: the path to the m4
> program itself is also hardcoded. So we add a patch to fix that as
> well. The patch has been submitted upstream.

Applied to master, after:
  - I added a reference to the upstream mailing list
  - expanded the commit log that upstream requested some changes

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
