removing -Wall will only inhibit compiler errors, whereas these warnings
are linker warnings, more specifically they are errors, dunno why these
get reported as warnings.

The root of the problem is probably that my version of cfg-lex.c is used
(which is supplied in the distribution tarball), which is generated by
flex and not simple lex, and then later the lex shared object used used
to link syslog-ng.

You can probably either:
- remove cfg-lex.c, regenerate it using the system lexer
- or install flex (and libfl.so along with it) and make sure syslog-ng
is linked against that library (check your configure logs)

I think most of the people here use syslog-ng with flex (including me),
so using the system lex on your system might be a bit risky.
