Hi, it seems that this bug has been reported :

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88566
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87613

Solution :

Quote:
Could you try "emerge --oneshot sys-devel/flex", and see if that fixes the issue?

Xorg-x11 depends on this, and it is the package that provides the libfl* files.
I dunno why it isn't installed, as it should have been pulled in as part of the xorg emerge.


Answer :

oneshoting dev-lang/flex in then emerging xorg-x11 solved the problem.

As for not reading the documentation, your going to have to be alittle more specific on what the mistake and solution were.

I just had the same exact problem. However I didn't have to do --oneshot and I also already had it installed. I'm not sure why the one I had installed was bad (fresh from reinstalling gentoo) but recompiling it did the trick. Thanks.
