Hi Bruce.  In the future, please send bug reports to bug-automake,
so that our bug tracker will keep track of them.  Thanks.

Long-standing bug/limitation.  There are a couple of (dormant) branches
in the automake repository that try to tackle similar issues for yacc
(see also automake bug#7648): `yacc-work' and `ylwrap-refactor'.  But
even if these branches will be finally completed and merged, the changes
they introduce will only appear in automake 1.12.
