        I need to make the above two checks fatal. You need
the lex OR flex libraries (depending on OS/Platform) in order
to link the config file parser currently.

        Would it be possible to install flex on
your system? If there are no packages available
you can grab the source from

        Sorry for the problems.

        Also, I have found what I think is a fairly critical
bug in 0.91.4 earlier this week. Let me know if you have any
problems. I think 0.91.5 will come out this weekend as I may
hack the code on my next flight or in the hotel and get it
