GNU Bison's grammar is written in Yacc. Amusingly, it is going to town
with Bison extensions, so you need Bison to re build it:


http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/bison.git/tree/src/parse-gram.y


So the user doesn't have to, they keep the generated C in the repo.


And that's about how far anyone can reasonably go in using a Yacc to build
Yacc.
