The dependency of the .o files on parse.h ought to be figured out by the make
depend step. I'll bet the motivation for this is to ensure that parse.h
*exists* during the make depend step, by ensuring that "make depend" runs
the parse-h rule to generate parse.h as part of ensuring that lex.c et al
are "up to date". If so, there has to be a better way to express that...
(I guess "lint" should also depend on parse-h.)
