I am not sure you need to care about that. See below

Your version is a bit old:

        Version 1.29.

I am not really a bison/flex expert and have no idea which features 
have been introduced in which version. I know it works with 2.4.1, 
therefore I would say the required baseline is 2.4.0. And it should 
not matter much, since ...

... normally bison/flex is not executed at all during a build. 
Buildconf (at least on unix) takes care that the timestamps are set so 
that make thinks the files are up to date. And the generated files are 
included in httpd. People who are not hacking on the .y/.l files 
should not need to care about bison and flex.

Maybe you just need to run buildconf once to fix the timestamps?
