The removal of arguments breaks some packages (e.g. net/libIDL) in
a way that cannot be fixed in a sane way.

The pkgsrc infrastructure does now add YACC=/usr/pkg/bin/bison to
the CONFIGURE_ENV, and that cannot be overridden by
in the package's Makefile.

I think that the infrastructure either should add
or not define YACC at all...
