Try building flex and bison and make sure that they are being used instead

original AT&T code in age.

After a quick pkg-get -i flex and pkg-get -i bison, the build started
again.  It complained later on about missing headers.  When I got back
to the terminal that I started the svn checkout, I found the following

svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

I would have checked this before I started it all, but I did this at a
terminal about 40 miles away originally :)

I was going to start the checkout again, but unfortunately I forgot to
gracefully shut down my server when I was fitting a light switch and
had turned off the power to my house, and its booting up to fsck (well
I am guessing it is...).  The server is headless and I don't have a
serial cable to fix it at the moment.

I will start again when I manage to boot the server and report my
findings, but with those minimal changes and with the correct packages
I am guessing most things will build OK
