Subject: Re:  Unable to compile on SPARC/SOLARIS 9

This is what happends  I I delete "Flex" and  try to
use "lex"  instead.


pkgrm SMCflex

gmake distclean && ./configure


# gmake
cd . && /bin/bash ./config.status config.h
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged

      lex - generate programs for lexical tasks

      lex [-cntv] [-e | -w]  [ -V -Q
       [y | n] ] [file...]


Apperantly   "configure" finds "lex"  but the flags
are still in "flex"-style.

I Agree that the problem seems to bee some incompatability between
the modern GCC 3.2.2 and the somewhat dated flex from 1997/8

I even tried to rebuild "flex" from source .  Still the same "istream"
