I wondered about this too. They were missing. I installed them. (Not
using this "sudo nonsense" ;).

I have bison, flex and even the yacc wrapper.

Reconfigured the package ... make leads to the same result. Going to

Ubuntu is surely great for those of us who need a Windows-like Linux.
I'm not of this flavor.

You (Ubuntu makers) did a great work to make Linux more popular. Hang
