Ok, I have an make error. But first, I make a description to arrive here:

says: "build-aux/bootstrap_gnulib: one of these is required:
glibtoolize libtoolize"
=> you have to install "sudo apt-get install libtool"
=> (and) "sudo apt-get install automake autoconf"

sudo apt-get install libpcre3-dev
sudo apt-get install libblas-dev liblapack-dev

here's the error [1]
I tried to resolve installing:
sudo apt-get install flex flexc++ flexbackup libfl-dev flexloader flexml
(also flex-old, and this remove flex and libfl-dev)

flex version: 2.5.35-10
libfl-dev version: 2.5.35-10
flex-old version: 2.5.4a-10

[1] Error in make
