*sigh* yes, I can't svn add so svn diff will ignore it. I'm too used to
actually have access to the repository I'm working with. :-7

I assume you don't use gmake, and thus etc don't get
regenerated for you. Diffing for these is a right bastard since the
difference in generator version drops 3/4 of the files into the diff,
even without a functional difference, that's why they are not included.
bison -y -d -p `basename rpsl.y .y` rpsl.y
mv `basename rpsl.y`.cc
mv `basename rpsl.y`.hh
flex -P`basename rpsl.l .l` rpsl.l
mv lex.`basename rpsl.l .l`.c `basename rpsl.l`.cc

But I noticed I'll need to go over it again anyway, since I seem to have
been 'asplaining' a bit too enthusiastically:

113% peval AS3.3
114% peval -asplain AS3.3
115% peval -no-as -asplain AS3.3
((AS196611 ))
116% whois3 -h AS196611
%  No entries found for the selected source(s).

This is going to pose an interesting problem if/when the registries start
to mix asdot and asplain, I guess irrtoolset ought to try and match both.
Fixing this will take at least until after next weekend, maybe longer.
