Is bug 604564 sufficient reason to get a newer flex stable for gcc-6?
Asking because there seem to be more problems with newer flex... and I've hit them myself too in my ~arch chroot.
The current ebuilds are not suitable for stabilization. We would need at least a rev bump and cherry-pick
Not a big deal.
sys-devel/flex-2.6.4-r1 is now in repository via https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/commit/?id=aa6c077d00c3a21b75ae646421aefadcad527f80
This should be fine for stabilization but let's wait a few days to settle.
please test and mark stable: =sys-devel/flex-2.6.4-r1
