Yes, that seemed to work, after I increased the value from 31999 to
99999. Is there a way that I can keep this patch locally, without it
being erased by portsnap? The porter's handbook paragraph 4.4 doesn't
mention anything like that.

Yes, I suppose so, but since flex is being called from a software
package we're making for distribution, whatever we do should be
sufficiently portable to other installations.
