AFAIK `parser.c` is a file generated from the actual grammar's source,
itself written in Javascript.

So the above instructions are akin to downloading a precompiled binary
and installing it.  While it is the most convenient path for the
end-users, it's important w.r.t Freedom to make sure that grammars can
also be regenerated from source by the end users.
