flex 2.5.4a and gcc3.2 bad combo?

I am wondering if anyone else is having problems with the LFS 4.0 flex and 
gcc versions.  I seem to be having a lot of programs failing due to random 
(f)lex generated code.  Some examples:  KTH Kerberos 4, Kopete's icq_new 
plugin, ttmkfdir2.  So far the errors usually deal with previous 
declarations of yy_something functions in some other header file.  Is this 
just my imagination, flex misbehaving/misconforming, these programs being 
out of date, or them just not modern enough for gcc 3.2?  I have never 
compiled them with gcc 2.95 to know the difference.  I am gonna try to 
recompile flex without any optimizations to see if that makes a difference.
