Wrong. There's no specific information about rebuilding compilers for
this problem, and I had already built make and yacc. The generic advice
about rebuilding the compiler if "Unreasonable compiler errors" occur
did not necessarily apply, as the error did not seem unreasonable.

Which I cannot do, as this is sparc64. Apparently the mainline toolchain
is not considered useful there (at least gnu/usr.bin/egcs/Makefile won't
build any compiler components on sparc64).
