Hi Stefan,

thanks for clarifying this.  Reading your original checkin message, I
thought that this was a *compilation* problem, which apparently it is

The error message is strange.  We haven't experienced any problems on
that end so far, and I suspect this is really a flex problem/bug.  So a
./configure check I guess is the right "solution".


P.S.: Stefan, much like you, I won't find time to look into this for at
least a week.  Whoever looks into this first just lets the other know,

In theory, practice and theory are the same,
but in practice they are different.
