Cool Justin, I was going to attempt an install on Fedora in the next 
little while..

Has anyone created a bug report about the errors when using the new 
version of bison??

While your work around is fine it does add one more thing to worry about 
when installing package updates.. If bison is updated by YUM or APT then 
Asterisk will have issues..
