erroneous yacc script

Subject: erroneous yacc script
Date: Wed, 23 May 2007 13:19:24 +0200


I use bison-2.3a on a solaris 2.8 system, with the GNU make 3.81, and i found 
out that the generated yacc program contains:

#! /bin/sh
exec '...my_prefix_path.../bin/bison' -y ""

instead of the (IMHO) correct

#! /bin/sh
exec '...my_prefix_path.../bin/bison' -y "$@"

Of course, with an easy modification in src/Makefile.in (line 660, replace $$@ 
with $$""@), i was able to change this. However, i suspect something wrong in 
my configuration because i don't understand why this had not been 
reported/corrected before. For example, the yacc program included in the latest 
cygwin installation (built from bison-2.3 with no modification) has the correct 
"$@" string. Apparently, this behaviour is there since at least bison-2.0.

Any help/inputs/pointers?
