Pass the --nounistd flag to flex since unistd.h is a header that might not be present on all systems.

I disagree. The global make rules, among other things, should enforce 
policies whether this be telling the C compiler to error on certain 
non-portable constructs like declarations after statements or telling 
flex not to output code that includes headers that might not be present, 
like unistd.h.

However, I've sent a patch that turns the option on individually for 
each file so that you can choose which route to take.
