Indeed, it does. I did a build world to make sure it worked (using the
freebsd9 snapshot), then installed flex 2.5.35 and rebuilt.
/usr/src/cddl failed to build, and possible others (ran make -k, but
haven't checked the log yet). Should I file bugs for each program that
doesn't build in newer flex? or sit back and wait for someone to fix
flex for BSD and then include it?
