Compile error while building setup.exe

I think the problem is in winsup/cinstall/  Either bison needs
to create iniparse.c or there needs to be a rule to tell make to use to create iniparse.o.

Even after a 'make clean', I had a iniparse.c from a previous build that was
being used to create iniparse.o.  When I deleted the old iniparse.c, make
complained about having no rule to create iniparse.o.

I am still investigating, but I suspect Chris will know immediately what the
correct fix is.
