flex package POSIX violation




The POSIX standard, at least since 1997 [1], requires the presence of a "lex"
utility.

Most systems (including Cygwin) provide a Lex implementation via the "flex"
package. However with other OS, a "lex -> flex" symlink is provided, whereas the
Cygwin package does not.

Please resolve this, thanks.
