Description of problem:
can't rebuild flex from srpm under Fedora 8

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild flex-2.5.33-11.fc8.src.rpm

fails with a gripe about automake version mismatch

Additional info:

I tried adding aclocal/automake/autoconf invocations to the specfile, but that
caused a different failure.
Comment 1 Petr Machata 2008-01-03 10:05:45 EST
Fixed in rawhide and F 8.  I will not push F 8 update, because this is just a
build issue hiccup, and nothing really changed inside.
Comment 2 Tom Lane 2008-01-03 11:07:22 EST
Thanks.  No need for a push now --- I only wanted to rebuild to test a fix that I'll be submitting
