PHP fails to compile with flex 2.5.33-r1, because flex fails with:
flex: fatal internal error, bad line in skeleton file
Files in: http://cvs.php.net/viewcvs.cgi/ZendEngine2/
zend_language_scanner.l and flex.skl
This stupid flex version just keeps breaking stuff... :/
PHP supports no version of flex later than flex 2.5.4.
Why are we not using the generated files that come with the tarball?
I'm compiling from CVS..
Please only file bugs about the PHP ebuilds, not about UPSTREAM PHP not building with Gentoo's toolchain.
Please take this UPSTREAM and file a bug at bugs.php.net about PHP being not buildable with recent versions of flex.
but I think this is a flex error, rather than a PHP one..

upstream php devs are already aware of this:

No pun intented, but did you note the dates on that upstream bug (and on the linked thread)? Marking this bug UPSTREAM won't solve the issue that php-5 won't build with current stable version of flex since flex just bombs out. Also, this is not exactly php fault, IMHO.

you cant use that phase unless you actually used a pun ... and you didnt ...

yes ... and if you read the sf bug tracker, you'll see that people are looking into it

this bug report has nothing to do with building php releases ... this has to do with building code in php cvs
