Hello everyone,

I'm attempting to compile and install the latest syslog-ng 3.0 from
source (downloaded from the git repository).  I believe I have
installed all the dependencies (configure does not complain).
However, I am receiving the following error when running make.

/bin/bash ../ylwrap cfg-lex.l .c cfg-lex.c -- /bin/bash
/home/nhausrath/packages/syslog-ng.git/missing --run flex
make[2]: *** [cfg-lex.c] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/nhausrath/packages/syslog-ng.git/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/nhausrath/packages/syslog-ng.git'
make: *** [all] Error 2

It seems the error is in cfg-lex.l, but I can't tell what exactly is
causing the problem.  Of course, it may be something completely
different that I am not familiar with.

Thanks for any help!
