You want flex version 2.5.4a.  This is the package flex-old on Debian 
GNU/Linux, and it is likely available for other distrobutions too.

I don't really like installing it, because it conflicts with the regular 
flex package.  I prefer to compile it myself, and just make sure the 
installation path is ahead of /usr/bin/ when I need it.
