Hmm. Perhaps the bug is that should also update FlexLexer.h?

Yeah, certainly looks like missing include file(s) somewhere? Thought
it's weird this has stopped working, since it does work in branch head
- have you changed some global headers? (there are too many things in
general that are included in global headers, imho, which may hide
missing local ones i nsome cases)

(sorry, I've not been following this thread, just got alerteed to it
when dave pointed towards me)

Well, in git head, it's in So it seems bison generated
it then, and that has changed. The one generated is by Bison 2.3, do
you have a different verison of that as well? Perhaps it's documented
in the release notes for that one how this has changed?

In principle I'm for incremental commits. Assuming the patch itself is
ok of course, I haven't actually reviewed anything :-)
