It's been a while since we ran this but the version of flex was likely
2.6.4. However it hasn't changed for quite a while so I guess that's
not going to be the problem.
That's really strange since lexer.c is generated with a pretty vanilla flex setup. I haven't encountered any issues with it locally (though I am still on flex 2.6.1)
In the hope that it may help, I updated gnulib to the latest version, and made a tarball. Not sure if it will help, but there's always hope ;)
