This is just a wild guess, but I think it's because .l and .y are both greater
than .c; when the files are checked out or copied, the .y file is copied last
and therefore gets a timestamp garunteed to be equal to or greater than the
.c/.h files.

openssl has the same problem, stemming from the fact that files are distributed
that are in fact generated by the distribution... it'd be cool if this behaviour
was eliminated entirely (with the exception of "configure", of course...),
either by just building the files at build time, or if you're concerned about
people not having flex/yacc, maybe calling the files ".dist" or something in the
tarball and having the make rules just cp them over...
