The rule you need is probably something like -

        $(YACC) $(YACC_FLAGS) $<
        mv -f $@

Hi Nicola,

just found out that I forgot to ask a question, but anyways, your rule directly leads to it. ;-)
Why not use a rule such as:

%.c: %.y
        $(BISON) $(BISON_FLAGS) -o $@ $<

The problem here is, I'm not sure which is better. I think that I heard people say that bison usually produces better code than yacc, but I might be wrong. If that would be the case however, then it might possibly be best to decided which rule to use while configuring GNUstep make - if bison is present, take my rule, if not, go with yacc. On the other hand, this might be overkill.
