Bison is not a prerequisite for building PARI. However, if you use the SVN version you need perl and bison (>=2.1). If Sage use a prope PARI tarball, then it will not need bison since the bison-generated file will be included in the tarball. The same is true for GP2C (the SVN version require autoconf, automake, perl, bison and flex). Cheers, Bill.
