Bug #37413 if flex is outdated, error does not occur in configure stage
Submitted: 2006-05-11 20:04 UTC Modified: 2006-05-11 22:05 UTC
From: cellog@php.net Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Compile Failure
PHP Version: 5.1.5CVS OS: gentoo linux (VMWare)
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2006-05-11 20:04 UTC] cellog@php.net
Description:
------------
I had flex 2.5.33 installed, and needed 2.5.4, but the first error message was a brief "flex needs to be 2.5.4" that scrolled by so fast in ./configure that I missed it.

The next error was fatal, and was when zend_language_scanner.c could not be found.

Basically, $LEX was being set to "exit 0;" which did prevent generation of a bad zend_language_scanner.c, but the error message was not helpful.

Better would be "flex is out of date" and termination while configuring

This is from a CVS checkout, which is obviously different from a snapshot or release build.
