No, see above - your diff is clearly not against a recent as-distributed
parsedate.y. I don't know *what* it is a diff against of course, but I'd
guess that it doesn't have the individual two-year "fixes" in the yacc
actions (see the diffs Katsuhiro posted) - who knows, maybe your version
actually works...:-)
