Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-11 13:13:38 UTC
The configure of your package checks for flex, even though your package might not contain .l files that flex uses to generate parsers. Your ebuild does not list a dependency on flex as per .

Either disable the flex test during configure to avoid false positive, or add the dependency upon flex if it's needed by your package.

Thanks in advance,
