I agree that ruby distribution should be re-packaged with
another version of Bison.

(1) We know there are at least two compilers which support
    prototypes but don't defined __STDC__ macro.
(2) And Bison does not know such compilers.
(3) So, we should tell Bison it.

Of course this aproach doesn't help another non-ansi compilers.
But telling Bison that VC and BCC are ansi compilers is not
bad thing, I think.
