I use bison and "%pure_parser", so linking shouldn't be an issue.

I don't handle unicode, but this is my fault, not bison's.  Bison
will traffic whatever YYSTYPE you define.  slax uses a structure
for YYSTYPE, which includes a pointer to the string.  I need to
check with the character encoding scheme as I build these strings.
I don't do this currently, but will fix it.
