I'll start all over again - using the following structure:
cd dist; wget distro..tar.gz
cd ../src; gzip -dc ../dist/distro.tar.gz | tar xf -
mkdir ../distro; cd ../distro
../src/distro/configure --arguments; make; make distclean
../src/distro/configure --arguments; make
As I have not been build OOT, maybe this fixes it - I forget why I am
not building OOT. Maybe because I was not being handy when having to
update a source tree with a patch.
IF above works - I'll say "my mistake", if not - might still be my
mistake, but not one I can figure out.

There is code in the Makefile that attempts to detect when the build and
source directories are not the same, and removes y.tab.[ch] from the build
directory when they are not. The problem is that when you run
`./configure', the source directory gets set to `.' and the build directory
gets set to the absolute pathname. Those don't compare as equal, and the
files get removed.
I could solve that problem with a short `same_dir' script, but maybe
there's an easier way.
