This is egcs cc1plus, right?  (I didn't see the start of this thread, for
some reason.)  This was probably a bad thing on my part - the dependencies
should be on .o, not .c. 

The parse-h thing is done so that make will tack something on to the end of
parse.h between the yacc processing of parse.y and the compiling of the
source files.  Check the cc1plus/Makefile and look carefully at the parse-h

I've committed a fix for this (which changes the .c's to .o's).
