            Bug ID: 256066
           Summary: contrib/flex version is out of date
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org

The flex version in source tree is out of date. The latest version of flex is
2.6.4 (release date 06 May 2017) at https://github.com/westes/flex/tags, but
source tree has the version 2.5.37.
Is it possible to update ?

Most of the ports that dependso on flex (for example snort3), find the base
system's flex while in configure step. So that installing latest flex from
ports doesn't solve issues.
