Description

lex's undocumented -Y option would be useful if it did anything. Yacc honors a very similar option to allow finding its files in an alternate location and it's clear that it was intended to do the same for lex, but subsequent code stomps on the recorded argument. This feature is useful for development of the tools themselves as well as for having an isolated set of build tools that can run on any system.
