Default flex 2.5.34 - build x86_64 and signoff

flex 2.5.34-1 is up for i686. I still haven't gotten myself going for
x86_64 builds yet, so would appreciate someone doing that.

Also a minor version update. Drops the patch that was previously needed,
as it appears to have been integrated. Cleaned up the install slightly,
put the lex shell script in a separate file.

signing off i686

built and added x86_64 package to testing.

I added a fix to have the man page in /usr/share/man/. Perhaps the i686
package should be rebuilt.

Curious, did it explicitly use /usr/man in the PKGBUILD? We have this
list here: https://dev.archlinux.org/todo/47/

It did not explicitly.

Thanks, Eric, for catching this. Will update i686 in the next build.

Sorry, won't signoff:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1860773&group_id=97492&a tid=618177

OpenOffice doesn't build anymore. It seems flex 2.5.34 can't generate
the correct C file for the included scan.l. When touching the file and
building flex with flex 2.5.33 installed, the resulting scan.c is
totally different than the plain scan.c included in the tarball. The
last comment states that flex is broken when touched again, which means
that flex can't build itself. How is it supposed to build other things
correctly if it can't process its own language file.

Ugh. Thanks for the catch, though someone else had already signed off,
so in it went, before you sent this.


Let's all see if we can find any solution to this problem in the next
day or so-- a patch or some obvious bug. Otherwise, I'll roll back to a
2.5.33 release in the repos.

There's no quick solution available. We've been again the first
distribution to run into a nasty upstream issue. Please downgrade it
very soon or let someone else do it.
