Ok, applied patches to flex.skl, uninstalled pkgsrc/devel/flex
package and compiled the new kdevelop binaries... no problems.

The missing declarations are now included in I haven't
tested the newly created package since I am accessing my
workstation and remotely, but feel confident that this will have
done the trick. However, I will try it out as soon as I return home...

It looks as if we found an answer to the problem. Now fingers cross that
it will pass Hubert's "build world" test.... ;-)
