Yes. There used to be a few -Wno-error uses throughout the source code, near
the flex calls, to work around the well-known flex warnings issue in case
someone wanted to use -Werror to check his builds. The fact that there was
only one such use left in the ecpg subtree shows that this wasn't really
maintained and could never have worked reliably.

I think it is reasonable to assume that those wanting to use -Werror should
use the new flex, because if they don't the build will fail anyway, at any of
the other lexers.
