Sorry for the REALLY slow reply on this. Had s personal disaster to deal with (my MacBook ended up at the bottom of Lake Washington)

I can confirm that the problem is fixed in 9.7t on OS-X 10.5 and Ubuntu Server 8.04.

Likely safe to close this one.

More diagnostics. From ./configure:

From manpage bash(1):

Had the same problem on Ubuntu Server 8.04. Problem was that some other non-flex lex parser was installed. Installed flex and all was happy.

DIAGNOSTICS: (stop reading if you don't care)

Here's what clued me in to the problem. This is a diff in makefiles between my Ubuntu and OSX builds:

which resulted in the following rather strange line just before the error occurred:

whereas my OS-X build had these lines:

Hope that helps

Is that "./configure; make", or "./configure && make"?

I'm not seeing any problem, but for instance if the
configure script is not finding a lex (flex) program,
it would give an error, and not build.
