GDB -Wmissing-prototypes and flex troubles

 I am working on MIPS CPU support
for Free Pascal and found a problem
inside GDB related to that.

 I treid to set up a gdb automatic tester on 
GCC compile farm gcc42.
muller@gcc42:~$ uname -a
Linux gcc42 2.6.27.1 #476 Tue Oct 20 14:25:23 CST 2009 mips64 GNU/Linux

But the compilation of GDB fails because the installed flex version
muller@gcc42:~$ flex --version
flex 2.5.33
(Cygwin installed flex 2.5.35 does add those prototypes)

Doesn't provide the missing prototypes required by the
use of this new warning used together with -Werror option.

  I didn't really find any version requirement
for flex.

  Should we:
1) Specify a minimal version for flex?
2) disable missing-prototypes option 
for ada-exp.c compilation?
3) Do 2) if version if below 
minimum version adding those prototypes?
