Thje way cvs works is that it gives the file the date it has in the

this will happen. But if you never ever build in the repo then it won't,
because buildfarm only ever builds in a copy (unless you're building with
vpath, in which case it cleans up the generated files).
This is something I do not recall doing, however it's possible. though
this does make me ask why are the build dependencies in the Makefile are
not properly setup to tell that the .y needs to be rebuilt (which I would
assume would make this problem also go away)
This sort of thing is usually a
symptom of somebody having run a build in the repo directly, a thing
that buildfarm owners have been repeatedly advised not to do.
Hum, so why not clean up the files when not in vpath as well?
find . -name .cvsignore | while read line
rm -fv `cat .cvsignore`
Because they are not supposed to be there in the first place! If the
buildfarm owner builds in the repo that is pilot error.
And, btw, buildfarm is not a shell script. We use File::Find to do this
sort of thing.
