Keep in mind that ‘c-tokenize.c’ is part of the distribution, so we
shouldn’t worry much about what Flex implementations do, as long as the
file we ship compiles fine.

I don’t have any problem with Flex 2.5.35.  Which version do you use?

This one seems wrong to me since $(snarf_doc).scm is in $(srcdir), not

Instead I suggest changing $(srcdir) to $(abs_srcdir), which should
solve the problem.

Can you confirm and commit?
