	As far as I can remember, bison 1.28 is the one that ships with
Apple's dev tools /usr/bin/bison, not fink's.  (Check your path, or "which
bison" to confirm).  IIRC, even far back as two/three years ago, fink's
bison version was 1.35 and higher.  The stable tree has had 2.0 for at
least a year now, 2.3 is current (unstable).  bison 1.28 was very
troublesome to me (similar experience building ginsh), I'm a little
surprised that it worked for you.
	Which bison did ginac's configure pick up?  fink's bison also
installs a /sw/bin/yacc that exec's "bison -y", which may be deceiving.
