What is it

This program is a must-have when doing any development work. It's used extensively by GNU tools and other products.

Solaris Issues
There are no specific OS dependancies compiled into bison to my knowledge. You can choose the version closest to your Solaris release, (i.e. the 2.5 version is suitable for 2.5 and above, and possibly earlier if you are feeling brave and there is no specific earlier Solaris option). Of course if there is a specific version for your Solaris release, install that.
