"touch gram.c" then "make" will build again the affected files. Which is 
different from "rm gram.c"...
A "touch gram.y" will trigger a rebuild of "gram.c" (and "gram.o").

Maybe Makefile has an option to be a little bit more conservative and rebuild 
any removed intermediate file even if not required.
