Hi, Michael.

Nothing actionable I noticed. I've put the full config.log on pastebin here: http://pastebin.com/uEJtuZFc but here are the immediate 5 or so lines before the error.

The only other error I noted in the config.log was for "conftest.c:11:28: error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory". But, since the name of the file is "nonexistent", I ignored the message.

Thanks for any input you might have!

configure:11552: error: Your operating system's lex is insufficient to compile
         libsfbpf. You should install both bison and flex.
         flex is a lex replacement that has many advantages,
         including being able to compile libsfbpf.  For more
         information, see http://www.gnu.org/software/flex/flex.html .
