I did, but it didn't help. Same error in omfonts

This worked.

I cd to the omfonts directory and called 
	flex -l ./pl.l
which fixed the problem for omfonts.

Then I got a similar error in detex:
sed -f ./states.sed ./detex.l > xxx.l
flex xxx.l
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -I. -I. -I.. -I./.. -DKPATHSEA  -g -O2  -c lex.yy.c -o lex.yy.o
lex.yy.c:824: error: Syntax error before ']' token

Here flex -l didn't help! From lex.yy.c:
int     fCite = 0;                      /* flag to echo \cite and \ref args */
int     fSpace = 0;                     /* flag to replace \cs with space */
int     fForcetex = 0;                  /* flag to inhibit latex mode */

#line 909 "lex.yy.c"

#define INITIAL 0
#define SJ 1

Where the hell are these 
are coming from?

Best wishes
