(Can't claim any credit for finding this, it's debian bug 320090:
but since it's an easy fix and doesn't seem to have made it upstream
I think it deserves to get into 1.1RC5 or 1.2 or whatever we call it.)
This isn't a huge problem most of the time because we ship with
sbr/dtimep.c newer than sbr/dtimep.lex. But still.
mnementh$ touch sbr/dtimep.lex
flex -nt dtimep.lex > dtimep.c
flex: option `n' doesn't allow an argument
Try `flex --help' for more information.
make: *** [dtimep.c] Error 1
mnementh$ lex --version
Fix: as per bug report, say this in the Makefile.in instead:
$(LEX) -o $@ $<
[But maybe this doesn't work with old-style lex...]
Incidentally, should dtimep.c really be in CVS, since it's a generated
