NetBSD death 1.4.3 NetBSD 1.4.3 (GENERIC) #22: Thu Nov  2 09:14:04 MET 2000 sparc
On a bog-standard install of 1.4.3 _without_ the Gnu bison package
installed, building the postgresql-7.0.2 package fails with yacc.
(Yacc complains about maximum table size reached)
There is no dependency on bison registered for postgres.
Install 1.4.3
cd /usr/pkgsrc/databases/postgresql

(Also tested to fail against NetBSD/i386.)
Either recompile YACC with a larger table size limit, or (much
easier!) add a dependency to postgres on the package bison-1.28
