NetBSD localhost 9.2 NetBSD 9.2 (CAN_KERNEL) #0: Mon Dec 13 17:36:42 CET 2021  niclas@localhost:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/CAN_KERNEL amd64
When creating a package that uses bison as a tool with USE_TOOLS+=bison
and BISON_REQD=3.0 pkgsrc outputs the line:
=> Tool dependency bison>=1.0: found bison-3.8.2

When setting GMAKE_REQD=3.0 for gmake the output is
=> Tool dependency gmake>=3.0: found gmake-4.3

This is as it should be.
BISON_REQD can even be set to 4.0 a version newer than the one released and used in pkgsrc and the the build just continues with the same output line as above. My conclusion is that BISON_REQD has no effect and that something is wrong in pkgsrc/mk/tools/ .
Do the steps in the full description.
