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.

Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2004-04-18 16:17:49 UTC
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:
