I had to manually set it executable, but that's just because it didn't
come to me through svn, I'm sure.

I forgot that I have a bison 2.3 installed on my system, and bison.sh
found that after I removed external/bison and built Warzone
successfully.  Removing that version causes bison.sh to download and
build bison just fine.

So only the m4sugar issue seems to remain.  Awesome. :)
