We're overthinking this.  The y.tab.[ch] in the git tree now were
inadvertently left over from a past commit.  Those files don't exist in the
development snapshots I create and use to make the devel tree.  Ordinarily
it wouldn't matter -- their timestamps would be much older than parse.y
and the usual rebuild would occur.  However, the git quirk I just noticed
that makes all files have a modification date equal to the time of the last
checkout defeats this.

People using the devel tree can be reasonably expected to have bison
installed, so I will just remove the (stale) files and go on.
