This seems to have got it working (download and building flex).  Thanks
for all the help.  You folks have a great project going and I appreciate
all the hard work you've put into it.

Your flex and bison are much newer.

I did a quick search and found this:


which suggests a bug in flex. Try downloading the version I have (or the
one you
are running successfully on RedHat) from ftp.gnu.org, configure and
build it
yourself with something like --prefix=/home/scott/flex, set PATH:

export PATH

untar unixodbc again, reconfigure and build.
