Someone reported this recently; it was a bug in "new" flex which was fixed shortly after with an update. According to the report, the broken version of flex was 2.6.1, and the fix was possibly in 2.6.2

(alternatively, you could compile reflex and build with that).

I run ./configure and make and get the following error:

```
flex -t scm-filt.l >> scm-filt.c
gcc -c -I. -I.. -I../filters -I.. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -D_GNU_SOURCE -D_DEFAULT_SOURCE -I./filters -g -O2 scm-filt.c
rm -f scm-filt.c
/bin/sh ../plink.sh gcc -g -O2 -o vile-scheme-filt scm-filt.o filterio.o filters.o
echo "#include <flt_defs.h>" > sh-filt.c
flex -t sh-filt.l >> sh-filt.c
/usr/bin/m4:stdin:2872: ERROR: end of file in string
makefile:248: recipe for target 'sh-filt.o' failed
make[1]: *** [sh-filt.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/vagrant/vile-9.8s/filters'
makefile:354: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2
```

This is on Fedora 25 with flex 2.6.0. I can provide the full log if needed but it appears to have something to do with the changes to sh-filt in 9.8s since 9.8r works fine.
