Description d.binderman 2004-02-19 11:41:40 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile development package bison-1.875-6

The compiler said

location.c(27): remark #300: const variable "empty_location" requires
an initializer

The source code is

location const empty_location;


[root@localhost SPECS]# grep empty_location
location const empty_location;
[root@localhost SPECS]#

Suggest delete unused variable.

That variable is used elsewhere, so your change is erroneous.
You cited a warning message from some third-party compiler.
No such compilers are supported on Fedora.  If you want to avoid that
warning, a change may be appropriate.  But that is an upstream issue,
if upstream maintainers care about your compiler.
