So, from compile-log2, you can see that in addition to the lex/yacc 
mismatch, there is an incompatibility with the Pack32{Big,Little} 
structures.  This is a consequence of the fact that that mlton-20051202 
was released with support for SML/NJ ver. 110.56, which was before SML/NJ 
caught up with a number of Basis Library changes.

I suppose that at this time, you have two options:
  1) go back to SML/NJ 110.56 in order to bootstrap mlton-20051202.
  2) checkout the MLton sources (http://www.mlton.org/Sources), which are
     compatible with SML/NJ 110.58.
