postgresql-7.3 does build fine with flex-2.5.4a-r5 however.

this might be similar to bug #11654
Comment 2 Dylan Carlson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-11 12:06:37 UTC
i have this same problem.  also running flex-2.5.23.  will wait until someone has a fix 
for the postgres build, or if flex revs up to fix the problem.  
Comment 3 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-14 23:14:31 UTC
masked >=flex-2.5.23
Comment 4 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-06 07:34:27 UTC
still broken with flex-2.5.31 and gcc 2.95 

maybe we should send this upstream ?
