Thanks. Yes, that certainly looks like a copy/paste error when the gram* files was moved to tools. (I just wonder why we're not using $< $@ in these rules.) 

It should be harmless until someone tries actually modifying the grammar. (To avoid relying on yacc/bison, we ship the gram*.c along with gram*.y).
