Hey guys, I've been working through the book (SVN-20050524), and I'm at 6.29. Flex-2.5.31...  (I posted this on the lfs-devel list, but they told me to ask here)...  However, I get the following when I attempt to compile (some parts compile, then it gets to this):

if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.  -DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/share/locale\" -I/usr/include -I./intl   -g -O2 -MT parse.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/parse.Tpo" -c -o parse.o parse.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/parse.Tpo" ".deps/parse.Po"; else rm -f ".deps/parse.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
/bin/sh /working/flex-2.5.31/missing --run flex   scan.l
/working/flex-2.5.31/missing: line 46: flex: command not found

Any thoughts, anyone?  :)
