But you're  still using 3.x libstdc++ headers, so it seems you also need
to get the 2.x version of libstdc++dev

For unstable, this is

    apt-get install libstdc++2.10-dev

but you can try

    apt-get install libstdc++-dev

and see what 2.x version it suggests.  INSTALL.txt does mention this, btw.

The INSTALL.txt says you need to get libkpathsea-dev, or tetex-dev,
depending on which distribution you are.  You better install this,
because you'll get lots of font troubles if you don't.

No, the only thing you need do is just, please, follow the INSTALL

There's nothing wrong with lexer.ll.  The problem arises when you
choose to install a too new compiler (gcc-3.x), but try to use it
together with a too old flex.  As far as I know this situation only
occurs after explicit user interaction; no distributions ship a broken
c++ development environment by default.
