binutils and flex

In 10.6 binutils-2.16.1, the text says that I might get a warning
message about flex.  When I tried compiling, I got an error message
about flex instead and binutils refused to compile.

I bypassed the error by copying a 32-bit flex into the LFS partition,
but I had to put it in /usr/bin to satisfy make.  It would not
accept .tools/bin for some reason.
