The config.log file might have more details. The error basically says
that the output for flex was not found.

Are you sure it is using flex and not the system installed lex? Again,
the config.log file has more details.

The flex/lex commands generate their output as a fixed named file
(usually lex.yy.c) and the makefiles cannot find this file.

Try running the flex command line by hand and check whether the file
gets generated.
