And make thinking:

   Prerequisite `perly.y' is newer than target `perly.h'.
  Must remake target `perly.h'.
sh -c true
  Successfully remade target file `perly.h'.

Why didn't it do this during the first make?
And why is perly.h older than perly.y?

I don't like waiting for it to rebuild again. Is this virtuous impatience or
false impatience?
