How can we test if the lex is adequate?

I can write a simple make specification (or script) to check for lex and
flex and then check for the --version.

But does a non-flex-lex return a version number?

In addition to the packages I mentioned before I need to check for a flex
(or lex) for
 math/bc (in wip-pkgsrc)
 x11/XFree86 (not imported yet)

I also need to check for a yacc for:
 misc/man-db (not imported yet)

And check for a groff or nroff for:
 misc/man-db (not imported yet)

And check for makeinfo for sysutils/e2fsprogs (not imported yet)
