But how does it know it needs to invoke bison/flex, with this change
nothing knows about the .y/.l files, surely the .y/.l files in the
module recipe is how it knows it needs to run flex/bison (see
third_party/waf/wafadmin/Tools/bison.py) and there is seems (well I
admit I am guessing) from the 'outs.append(node.change_ext('.tab.c'))'
that is how the generated '.c' files are added to the sources for
rpc_mdssvc_module. For me deleting the bin directory and rebuild fails (
source not found: 'mdssvc/sparql_parser.tab.c' in 'dir://.... )

I haven't seen this error yet, but I suppose it is either a bug in waf
(or how I am using this stuff) :-/ sorry no clue at the moment
