Cygwin configures and builds current flex "out of the box," and I get
only 1 adverse indication in the testsuite. Your recommendation to
use linux amounts to using a posix environment, more so than
cygwin. So, I'm not convinced by any of these suggestions that
avoiding posix emulations makes it easier.
