 If you mean (me David), I haven't any idea - I don't remember anything
 that matches this bug, but the type of parser hacking that most likely
 fixed it is rarely a good pullup candidate.
 We could of course just sync -6's make with head, or with -7, if it
 doesn't cause build problems in base. (I don't think doing that with
 -5 would be safe though.)
