I'm not sure exactly, but if it points to something that doesn't exist
it's definitely wrong. Let's move this to tech-pkg.

(I would think, also, that USE_TOOLS+=flex should get you flex,
specifically, and USE_TOOLS+=lex should allow other implementations as
well. But I guess that isn't the issue in this case.)
