Bug Description

Hello,

Unfortunately, I am unable to get libmemcached 1.0.17 to compile on RHEL 6.4. The required version of bison went from 2.4 to 2.5 between the 1.0.16 and 1.0.17 releases. RHEL 6.4 comes with bison 2.4.1. If I just patch the parser.yy file to require version 2.4, I get the following error:

  CXX libtest/libtest_libtest_la-runner.lo
  CXX libtest/libtest_libtest_la-server.lo
  CXX libtest/libtest_libtest_la-server_container.lo
  CXX libtest/libtest_libtest_la-signal.lo
libtest/server_container.cc: In member function 'libtest::Server* libtest::server_startup_st::create(const std::string&, in_port_t, bool
)':
libtest/server_container.cc:241: error: 'HAVE_MEMCACHED_BINARY' was not declared in this scope
make[1]: *** [libtest/libtest_libtest_la-server_container.lo] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/libmemcached-1.0.17'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I get the same error on RHEL 5.9 without the patch. With the patch I get:

+ make -j4
  GEN libmemcached/csl/scanner.cc
"libmemcached/csl/scanner.l", line 38: unrecognized '%' directive
"libmemcached/csl/scanner.l", line 40: bad character: #

"libmemcached/csl/scanner.l", line 40: bad character: >
"libmemcached/csl/scanner.l", line 41: bad character: #
...

Please note the RHEL 5.9 comes with bison 2.3. I was able to build libmemcached 1.0.16 on RHEL 5.9 without any issues.

Thanks,

Ben
