Thinking about it a bit more, I'm not sure that it is worth writing a
configure check for this if you are just going to check the version
number, since what is really needed is a check to make sure that flex
has the required feature(s) or doesn't have the bug(s) that prompted
me to require 2.5.4. Unfortunately, I don't have a record of that,
only the following lame-o ChangeLog entry, which doesn't help much.

* lex.l: Require flex 2.5 or later (we really want 2.5.4 or later,
but there seems to be no good way to check the patchlevel).
