Sorry, won't signoff:


OpenOffice doesn't build anymore. It seems flex 2.5.34 can't generate
the correct C file for the included scan.l. When touching the file and
building flex with flex 2.5.33 installed, the resulting scan.c is
totally different than the plain scan.c included in the tarball. The
last comment states that flex is broken when touched again, which means
that flex can't build itself. How is it supposed to build other things
correctly if it can't process its own language file.
