msi.dll broken with yacc in current cvs

Hi Stefan,

I think it's probably better to upgrade your yacc.  I guess we could add 
a configure test for this and disable msi.dll if yacc is not new enough, 
but I'm hesitant to remove %pure-parser because msi.dll will require a 
second parser for parsing conditions in the database.  Additionally, I 
don't like the idea of adding a critical section to that code.
