There is a newer version of flex on sourceforge. It introduces some new
features and breaks old ones. I reported that to the people who were
making the changes, but since it's been a few years without a fix - and
see the unanswered bug reports on that site, suspect it's a dead
project.


See
http://flex.sourceforge.net


The breakage that I reported prevents me from compiling lexers with
renamed entrypoints - which I use here, to link in syntax highlighters
for multiple languages:

(There are more recent versions of bison, but I prefer byacc).
