Control: reopen -1 Control: found -1 2.6.4-1 The patch in this bug report was dropped in the 2.6.4-1 upload and now the failure mode is back. The patch still applies somewhat with some rebasing and flex still Build-Depends: flex <cross> for it.
Also can you please just stop using help2man? The manual page is useless. Having a static page telling to use flex --help and the info documentation would be much better in addition to solving this problem. Helmut
