For what it's worth, Bryan, you can install gcc 2.95 concurrently with gcc 3.2 
any trouble.  I'm on a Linux From Scratch system, so I have a LOT more control 
where things get installed (and what gets installed); I stuck gcc 2.95 in 
/usr/gcc2 and 
compiled flex 2.5.4 with that.  I don't know if it was actually necessary to 
lilypond with gcc 2.95 as well, but just to be sure that flex and lilypond are 
I did so, and it runs fine.

I realize that the ideal fix will be for flex to work with gcc 3.2.x, but 
that's a problem 
for the flex people to fix, not a lilypond issue.  Until that happens, even a 
distro like Mandrake or Red Hat should let you install both flavors of gcc
