What are you building that requires building against flex?
Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2004-07-07 13:10:15 EDT
Nothing any more. :-)

We had an old application which did use yywrap from libfl.  When we
started building on x86_64 with i386 as target we encountered this
problem.  But we did some obvious trivial changes so we no longer do
link with -lfl.

It would still be needed to use x86_64 as a compatible development
platform, so I would still argue it is a bug.  But it doesn't have any
high priority any more from our point of view.

Closing not a bug per earlier comments, no plans to add 32-bit flex package to
x86-64 RHEL 3 distro at this time.
