Sorry, it is only related in that it's the same package. I'm not sure 
what the policy is for being able to reinstall a package without making 
changes to the instructions. I don't know if using -f for all ln 
commands would be appropriate throughout chapter 6 or not. This is a 
very minor issue and could easily be ignored as it would be best 
practice not to use -f when not needed, or it could be 'fixed' in that 
it is appropriate for a reinstall of flex. Could just as easily argue 
that the command should be removed in a reinstall/upgrade. I just ran 
into a minor issue that also tripped up jhalfs and figured I'd report it.
