Bison 2.3.1 fails without sudo rights

I just tried upgrading bison to 2.3.1 and got an access denied error. I'm using macports without sudo and most of the time it works fine.

The problem is that the directory settings in post-destroot are too strict and don't give the current user write access. Here is a patch which should change this and works fine for me.

Thanks for your help, Simon
