Comment(by simonmar):

 Those files have moved, e.g. `compiler/parser/Parser.hs` is now

 I agree they should not be removed by `make distclean` though.  Or perhaps
 we are changing the policy, and you need Happy & Alex even when building
 from a source dist?  I guess that would be ok, it's a bit of a pain to
 arrange to keep these generated files around for a source dist.  Ian?
