Description updated

I'll take this.
We now have the opposite problem; lex is so old s/w doesn't build on it anymore.  pkgsrc has been masking this for a while, especially with their new FLEX_REQD directive.
Bug #496: flex upgrade

Author: Peter Avalos
Status: In Progress
Priority: Normal
Assignee: John Marino
Target version: 

So here's a patch that will bring in the latest version of flex, and will
put it in contrib/.  I'd appreciate some feedback.  If I don't hear any
objections, I'll plan on importing this in about a week.


Another possible thing we could do is move the library building into
lib/libln/.  What do you think about that?
