It required a newer flex version to build. I took the fedora 7 version,
which is new enough and it installs on centos 5.5 without complaining for
dependencies. If you do some patching to the official version, it also
requires a newer autoconf version.

Also for instalation it requires nss-mdns package, which i got from ATrpms.
