  | Well, that did not work, it kept regenerating the file all over again,

If that's happening, then something is broken on your system.  Is the
date set correctly?

OK, so make clean removes dtimep.c (since it can be regenerated from
dtimep.l) - your flex (or lex) generates code that is C99 (has //
comments - for no rational reason at all incidentally, that's insane)
and then nmh compiles with -ansi and no c99 options, so // comments
aren't C.

That combination would do it.

Submit a bug report to whoever supplies the lex (or flex) that your
system uses (wherever the system came from) and complain about the
generation of c99 in what should be a generic C source file.
