      first (Closes: #898725)

  [ Niels Thykier ]

    field and remove flex-old Breaks, that package never contained a shared
    library.

  * Bug fix: "Debian-specific libfl.so linker script causes FTBFS", thanks
    to Adrian Bunk (Closes: #890415).
  * Bug fix: "Does not provide suitable libfl.a for PIEs", thanks to James
    Clarke. I undertand that gcc now builds with PIE (Closes: #870769).
  * Bug fix: "libfl_pic.a is not compiled with -fPIC", thanks to Balint
    Reczey. We no longer provide that library. (Closes: #837658).
  * Bug fix: "Type of yy_n_chars changed to yy_size_t by authors cause bug

  * Added get-orig-source target, and updated the watch file
  * Bug fix: "flex FTCBFS: executes host architectue stage1flex during
    build", thanks to Helmut Grohne (Closes: #833146). This reinstates
    Helmut's original fix. There was a question about not using help2man
    in the first place. I considered it; but upstream continues to use
    help2man, including it in autoconf. I think Helmut's fix is elegant,
    and saves work as flex's options change over time, and is a smaller
    delta from upstream.

flex (2.6.4-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version. Notable changes
    + a segfalt involving yyrestart(NULL) has been fixed
    + flex should now handle quoting when mixed with m4 processing correctly
    + flex handles `[[' and `]]' correctly
    + flex no longer generates non-ANSI code
    + more compilation warnings were squashed in generated scanners
    + prevented a buffer overflow that could occur when input buffers were
      the exact wrong size
    + several bug fixes resolved problems introduced in recent flex
      versions regarding processing of comments, literals and various
      quoting scenarios.
    +  If the path to m4 was sufficiently long, a buffer overflow could
       occur. This has been resolved. The fix also removes dependence on
       the constant PATH_MAX.
    + Some minor performance enhancements.
    +  We honor user defined yy_* macros again. We are also more careful
       to not leak macro definitions into header files.
    + A number of portability fixes were introduced so building flex is
      more reliable on more platforms. Additionally, outdated function
      calls were removed.
    + When building the flex executable itself, %# comments from
      flex.skl are removed when generating the C source code array. This
      reduces the size of flex.
    + Flex can be cross compiled.
  * Bug fix: "comparison between signed and unsigned integer expressions",
    thanks to Frank Heckenbach. This should be fixed now. (Closes: #835542).
  * Bug fix: "Please update homepage in package description", thanks to
    Tim Ruehsen (Closes: #851675).
  * Bug fix: "Should Suggest: flex-doc", thanks to Yuri D&#39;Elia
    (Closes: #856956).
  * Stole some commits from 2.6.5 to fix FTBS issues in 2.6.4 release.

  * Updated standards version to 3.9.7. No changes needed.
  * Bug fix: "[src:flex] FTCBFS: runs host arch binaries during build",
    thanks to Helmut Grohne. Make the tests use either the installed flex
    or the newly built flex to generate test soureces, depending on
    whether or not we are cross compiling. Also added a build depends flex <cross>
    Hope this works. This has not broken the common case. (Closes: #762180).

  * Bug fix: "flex FTCBFS: runs tests even when DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS contains
    nocheck", thanks to Helmut Grohne. Added an AM_CONDITIONAL that tests
    DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS in configure.ac, and use that in
    tests/Makefile.am. Seems to work fine. (Closes: #812659).
  * Bug fix: "runs host arch binaries during build via help2man", thanks
    to Helmut Grohne. The change from the previous patch is that the flex
    binary now is created in ./src/  (Closes: #762180).

  * Bug fix: "C++ style comment in C output", thanks to Tim Rühsen
    So, when we applied the upstream patch, it only fixed the skeleton
    file, flex.skl, and not the generated files skel.c and scan.c;. Added
    a feature branch that fixes the generated files, the need for this
    will go away with the next upstream release. I hope. For what it is
    worth, the diff in upstream seems to be the same one that was in the
    NMU; and I have no explanations for why the -6 would behave diferently
    from the NMU. (Closes: #813256).

  * Bug fix: "C++ style comment in C output", thanks to Tim Rühsen
    There is a fix uploaded to deferred by Salvatore Bonaccorso
    <email address hidden>. I am uploading this fix instead, since this
    variant has the same fix applied by a signed cherry pick from
    upstream, which will make the upgrade to the next version somewhat
    simpler.  (Closes: #813256).
  * Bug fix: "wrongly declares Multi-Arch:foreign", thanks to Helmut
    Grohne. While we discuss the correct solution for this, I have removed
    the MA package tags. I am not quite happy with the proposed solution
    (swapping names of the packages seems icky, but I'll defer to the
    experts if there is no better way)   (Closes: #761449).

  * Added a missing build depends on vm-super-minimal, reuired fro
    building the pdf documentation,  (Closes: #752151).
  * Move flex.pdf to the flex-doc package. This makes it possible for the
    flex package's contents to not change if texinfo is not installed,
    e.g. in the stage1 build profile.  Thanks to Peter Pentchev
    <email address hidden>
  * Move the flex-doc build dependencies to B-D-I. Move the TeX Live
    dependencies to Build-Depends-Indep and only build the HTML and PDF
    documentation if actually requested. This breaks a circular build
    dependency by not requiring texlive for the build of the
    arch-dependent flex binary packages.  (Closes: #749344).
  * Bug fix #752151: "pdfetex error about missing cm-super", thanks to
    Helmut Grohne and Cyril Brulebois
  * Bug fix: #749344" Allow bootstrapping without texlive and
    dh-autoreconf", thanks to Peter Pentchev

  * dh-autoreconf already depends on all the autotools that it will
    attempt to use to rebuild the package's build framework, so remove the
    direct (and redundant) dependencies on the autotools
    packages. Suggestion by Peter Pentchev  (Closes: #749341).
  * The patch also cleaned up the creation of examples and links for man
    pages.
  * Bug fix #749341: "Drop the autotools build dependencies, dh-autoreconf
    is sufficient", thanks to Peter Pentchev

  * Adapted patch from Matthias Klose to add  pre-seeding of autoconf
    values as paramaters, fixing cross builds. flex uses runtime checks
    for configure tests, and preseeding allows cross build to succeed,
  * Bug fix: "fix cross build", thanks to Matthias Klose. Applied fix

  * [f6cc9ae] Narrow buffer size changes to just IA64
    Increasing the buffer size on other architectures cause problems in
    corner cases not caught by the test suite. So perhaps it is not better
    to increase the buffer size unilatereally for all architectures, but
    to just increase it for the architecture it is required on, namely,
    IA64, and leave it unchanged on other architectures. This solution
    should fix the new grave bugs, while not reopening the original but
    that cause this change to be done in the first place. 
    Grave Bug fix: flex scanner push-back overflow, thanks to Sergei
    Golovan                                       (Closes: #505056, #504030)

  * [d58780f] Wrap ECHO macro to avoid FORTIFY warnings
    This change will enable flex scanners to be compiled with
    -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2, which is a good thing security wise.
    Bug Fix: flex causing warnings when compiled with FORTIFY_SOURCE,
    thanks to Kees Cook.                           (Closes: #505233, #388438)
