I think you should hack configure with REINPLACE_CMD and change

for ac_prog in flex lex


for ac_prog in ${LOCALBASE}/flex

something like that.

You can see several

test: yes: unexpected operator
test: no: unexpected operator
test: yes: unexpected operator
test: yes: unexpected operator

thingies in the configure output.
Those are because FreeBSD test doesn't support ==, so

if test "$AMULECMD" == "yes"; then

fails and AMULECMD_MANPAGES is thus empty.

You should REINPLACE_CMD -e '/if test/ s|==|=|' ${WRKSRC}/configure (and
it's good to submit that fix upstream; bashisms should be eliminated).
