I do currently have flex, bison and ncurses-devel installed. Am I
missing some other package?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The two symbols you refer to are defined in the "msglex.l" module.

Did it actually construct "msglex.o" starting from "msglex.l" or did it just use the "msglex.c" included in the tar file just to aid people who don't have it which might have been built with an incompatible flex? If so, get rid of the "msglex.c" file.

Otherwise I'm actually halfway through putting up release 1.2 mostly for the benefit of Debian if you want to grab the sources from the Git repository. I know we had to do all sorts of nasty things in that area to satisfy the Debian overlords.

The Git repository can be got using

git clone git://

Have you got "GTK+-devel" loaded as well as you'll probably want that.
