If Flex is required to build itself, then it probably should be
put back into the book in Chapter 5. I'm cc'ing the -dev list with
this message, so the dev guys can determine if it really needs to
be added back.

If I'm wrong, and it is a host issue more than a lack of having
Flex installed, sorry for the noise to the -dev list.
