Someone is *explicitly* telling GMP to use LEX=nonsense. When
configure detects that, the most logical behavior seems to be to stop
and tell the user about it (which is apparently what happens). If no
LEX was provided and autodetection didn't find one, it would make
sense to keep going and possibly disable anything (1 demo ?) that
depends on flex (I didn't check what happens).
It would be possible to ignore broken explicit options, but I don't
think that would be an improvement.
It indeed seems like a poor idea to override the explicit instructions
of what is usually a user of flesh and blood.
(I don't know configure well, I am not the one you need to convince,
etc, so don't take it as a definitive answer from the GMP project,
just the opinion of someone who may not have all the relevant info)
Well, I agree, so now we're two. :-)
