The commands that fail are:

flex -i -o src/cfgparse.yy.c ../i3-4.3/src/cfgparse.l
flex -i -o i3-config-wizard/cfgparse.yy.c i3-config-wizard/cfgparse.l

The below commands work:

flex -i -osrc/cfgparse.yy.c ../i3-4.3/src/cfgparse.l
flex -i -oi3-config-wizard/cfgparse.yy.c i3-config-wizard/cfgparse.l

So making the port to build is very simple.
You can try my patch: http://oslo.ath.cx/i3-wm_4_3.diff

I've cc'ed the port maintainer.
