Looks that you don't have bison installed on that system.
Bison is in build-depends of binutils, but build-depends is not checked when
debian/rules binary-cross is executed.
If you have bison installed, please check configure.log to find out why it
was not detected and passed to appropriate Makefile.

I just forgot about dpkg-shlibdeps :).

'man dpkg-shlibdeps' is your friend :).
dpkg-shlibdeps -Lemdebian/shlibs.local -Temdebian/substvars
However, this may be inconvinient to add those paramenets in emdebian/rules
of almost all packages. If you think so, we may (for example) make
dpkg-cross version of dpkg-shlibdeps to honour $shlibslocalfile and
$substvarsfile environment variables if those are set; later you may set
those in 'mode emdebian: scope environment:' part
It woul be nice if you'll CC: yoush replies to my e-mail :).
