The assembler makefile doesn't reference yacc, but instead relies
on gmake's built in rules to figure out how to generate a .c from
a .y. I'm somewhat surprised that bison doesn't create a link to
yacc or that gmake doesn't try to look for bison.

Oh well. We'll just have to be more careful in how future patches
are generated so that the dependency between the generated firmware
files and the firmware source only triggers if you are actually
performing firmware development. Trying to build this simple
assmebler on everyone's systems is turning out to be just too
