First the webkit port already depended on flex. Since the configure
script wants version at least 2.5.33, we need to depend on the port. The
problem is detection of the flex binary. Without the patch mentioned in
the pr, the port system can pick up the base flex, if the port flex
isn't installed. So tell the port to look in localbase for the port
flex.
