I got the same error. But not under woody.

Oh dear, thats not the woody package:

downgrade to version
flex 2.5.4a-24

I've found this information in the topic of the irc chat :-(

How to downgrade:

point 6.2.7
point 6.2.8

make sure that the stable dist is available in your sources.list


apt-get install -t <stable-dist> flex 
it should work.
