I think you need to put [parisc-linux] in the subject somewhere.

flex and bison aren't actually needed to compile binutils, as the
files produced by them are in CVS.  However, when checking out a binutils
tree, you may end up with the generated files having an earlier date stamp
than their corresponding source files.  "make" then thinks they need to
be rebuilt.  To get around this problem, you can just "touch" the
generated files to update their date/time stamps.

Should be.

You haven't given me enough info to decide what the problem is here.  One
work-around you can use is to "touch .depend" and avoid the "make dep"
completely.  I build kernels this way;  It's safe if you always start off
from a clean directory.

You may be better off using the puffin gcc.  Is gcc-2.8.1 suitable for
hpux11?  I thought there was some problem with it, but maybe HP have
patched the version of gcc available from their site.
