      Building the linker uses flex, however the configuration process does
      not add '-lfl' to the list of libraries to link the final
      binary with.  Is there a certain reason that -lfl is not added to the
      set of libs to link with?

   It shouldn't be necessary, at least not for modern versions of flex.
   -lfl just defines main and yywrap.  main is defined in ldmain.c, and
   yywrap is defined in ldlex.l.  Is it causing trouble?  What version of
   flex are you using?

Currently flex 2.4.5 is installed on the machine which I do SunOS gas
testing..  Precisely, without adding -lfl the compilation fails with
undefined references to:


This could be something stupid with the way I installed flex or the
fact that is an older version.
