Or something else like "glex", since it doesn't really look much like flex any
more... I don't know whether it will be possible to port to the new API and
still have postgresql compile with the old API.

Incidentally, for anyone else compiling on debian there's a flex-old package.
I can't install it because of some other dependencies, so i just reverted to
the old flex.
