Confirmed flex in fedora.us-buildsys, however the build fails later
due to other missing BuildRequires.  Please find the exact missing
BuildRequires and report back.

Installing flex made it work for me. I'm not sure what else it needed.
But according to the missing file: aclocal, autoconf, autoheader,
automake, bison, flex, help2man, makeinfo, & tar.

Commited to cvs.devel, so will show up in when it is built.

FWIW, this is what I'm using now:
