Description root 1995-08-02 19:50:01 UTC
As the subject say, we should bring a newer flex in like NetBSD.


Look into my homedir on thud ~mr/newlex.tar.gz
It contains a diff for the old -> new flex or go to /usr/src
and install the lexsrc.tar.

It extracts to lib/libl and usr.bin/lex.
It is obtained from NetBSD.
Try to compile postgres-beta0.03 as BSD44_derived.
