When the tree is checked out, *.c files get updated earlier than *.y files,
making the latter slightly newer than the former.
The following sequence of commands demonstrate what's happening in the
`depend' target.

$ cd /usr/src/contrib/gdb-6.2.1/gdb
$ rm *
$ cvs up
$ cd /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/gdb/gdb
$ make obj
$ cvs up -r1.4 Makefile
$ make -j3 -n depend > ~/j3
$ cvs up -r1.5 Makefile
$ make -j3 -n depend > ~/j3_
$ diff -u ~/j3 ~/j3_ | less -S

See the difference? That is, when [cf]-exp.c but not [cf]-exp.y are
specified in SRCS, suffix rule .y.c from sys.mk is used, which is not
-j safe (already pointed out by Brad Harvell on bugs@), because multiple
instances of ${YACC} try to write to the same y.tab.c file(and probably
unlink it before writing to it). When [cf]-exp.y are specified in SRCS on the
other hand, the `.for _YSRC' rule in bsd.dep.mk produces explicit rules for
each *.y file using `${YACC} ${YFLAGS} -o'.

To summarize, if SRCS contains more than one *.c file having corresonding
newer *.y files in the same directory, `make -jN depend' may fail depending
on the mtime of *.c and *.y. As of gnu/usr.bin/gdb/Makefile rev 1.5, scm-exp.c
is the only *.c that has corresponding *.y in the same directory(which is
slightly newer because of the order of cvs checkout).
The question is, whether we can change .y.c rule in sys.mk to make it -jN
(as pointed out by Brad).
