No. y.tab.c is the output of bison run on a parser description file. As
Greg explained, I distribute that file with bash to reduce the number of
external dependencies, and you should be able to run bison against
parse.y to recreate it.

But that's not the problem. The error message is from bison, and the file
it cannot find is part of the bison distribution:

So Greg's advice is appropriate: find out why bison is looking for that
file, since that appears to be the reason bison is returning a non-zero
exit status.
