A (bug-fix too?) suggestion: while trying to determine the exact
dependencies to store that in a packaging file (debian/control), I
discovered that without flex, I got:
  checking for bison... bison -y
  checking for flex... no
  checking for lex... no
  checking for yywrap in -lfl... no
  checking for yywrap in -ll... no
  configure: WARNING: I'd much prefer to use GNU flex

But no error. While compiling in src/ I then got some error, and even
after having installed 'flex', that couldn't be compiled (even after
'make clean' too, IIRC), since some files had been altered. I therefore
think that you should issue some ERROR during the ./configure phase if
neither flex nor lex is found.

IIRC too, I got no error about the absence of bison, and I had to search
a bit to find that the missing `yacc` command was in this `bison`
package (I did: `aptitude search yacc`, but it wasn't sufficient. I got
to play with apt-cache (could have been achieved with some good option
in aptitude)).

For (Debian|Ubuntu|whatever) people who could want to:
  apt-get build-dep graphthing

the missing information in debian/control is:
  Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 4.0.0), g++, libwxgtk2.6-dev, bison, flex

That will be included in the next revision or version. I've got to sleep
a bit...
