why is /usr/lib/liby.a (the Yacc lib) buit along with the other libs
in /usr/src/lib, but /usr/lib/libl.a (the Lex lib) not?

I think either both should go with their respective programs, or both
should go into /usr/src/lib.

BTW: Why is Flex used and not Blex (Berkeley lex)? This is BSD, right?
I remember several times when I had trouble porting programs because
flex wasn't really comatible with (SunOS) lex. GnuChess/XBoard was one
of them, I think, but that was some time ago.
