Problem with Flex shared objects

I was trying to build gradm on my HLFS system (2.6 kernel, glibc).
Initially I got an error indicating that -lfl could not be found. I traced
the error message back to a problem with the flex shared object libraries.
The build instructions have the following lines:
gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,libfl.so.2.5.33 \
-o libfl.so.2.5.33 -fPIC libmain.o libyywrap.o
rm -v /usr/lib/libfl.a
install -v libfl.so.2.5.33 /usr/lib/libfl.so.2.5.33
ln -vs 2.5.33 /usr/lib/libfl.so
I think the last line should be:
ln -vs libfl.so.2.5.33 /usr/lib/libfl.so
I fixed the broken link and the not found error went away, but the gradm
build then complained about not being able to link to yexx. So I think
something else is wrong in trying to make the shared object for flex. If I
leave these linkes out of the flex build and keep the static libfl.a than I
can get gradm to build fine.
