Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.  It's fine to require
the *maintainer* to have 'flex', so there would be only
one tarball, one with all the examples extracted from
the manual nicely.  The point is that there should be no
need to require that the *builder* must have 'flex'.

If you're too busy for this I could take a crack at it.
Alas, the git master doesn't build for me.  When I
try to check it out and run './bootstrap' (this is
on Fedora 15, by the way, not Solaris) it fails
with the tail end of the log being as follows:

running: AUTOPOINT=true LIBTOOLIZE=true  autoreconf --verbose --install 
--no-recursive -I m4 
autoreconf: Entering directory `.'

      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
