Actually RV VII.33.11 refers specifically to Vasistha's birth.

On this stanza, you can read the paper by R. N. Dandekar (1974), "The Two
Births of Vasiþõha. A Fresh Study of .gveda VII.33.9-14", in Antiquitates
Indogermanicae: Studiesn zur Indogermanischen Altertumskunde und zur Sprach-
und Kulturgeschichte der indogermanischen Völker. Gedenkschrift für Hermann
Güntert zur 25. Wiederkehr seines Todestages am 23. April 1973, ed. by
Manfred Mayrhofer et. al., Innsbruck: Institut für Sprachwissenschaft der
Universität Innsbruck, pp. 223-231. D also talks about Agastya.

You can also see my paper in print in *Pandanus 2002 (Charles University,
Prague)*, "The Flowers of Rgveda Hymns: Lotus in V.78.7,  X.184.2, X.107.10,
VI.16.13, and VII.33.11, VI.61.2, VIII.1.33, X.142.8" where the stanza is
analyzed and some more biblio given.

Best,
