I've often seen people asking for help compiling Wget because a file, css.c cannot be found. This occurs because Flex is required to generate that file. However, configure does not attempt to check if flex is installed on the system.

I believe that even if a dependency is documented in the README files, the configure script **MUST** check for it before continuing. Hence, I'd like to push this patch which checks for the existence of flex before continuing.

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
