Hello,

with the newest flex (v2.6.2-19-g6bea32e, which is newer than 2.6.3) I 
need this patch to compile postgres:

diff --git a/src/interfaces/ecpg/preproc/pgc.l

index 0453409d37..1c82b58e18 100644

+#define yylex base_yylex
  /*

otherwise the linker fails with:

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

because of ecpg/preproc/parser.c:68 (in REL9_5_STABLE)

With previous versions of flex the compilation has worked.  But I do not 
find in the code where is supposed yylex to be renamed to base_yylex 
when parser.c is proccessed.  pgc.l also does not use %option 
prefix=base_yy, which would be the right way to rename yylex (apart from 
#define YY_DECL).

What is the purpose to rename yylex to base_yylex?

Greetings
   Дилян
