Following the getting started instructions and the approximate suggested path for my .profile.
I ended up with flex.exe being found in the Git installation directory.
My work around was to: uninstall msys Install MinGW/MSys from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Automated%20MinGW%20Installer/mingw-get-inst/mingw-get-inst-20110530/
DO NOT download the latest catalogues. They've uploaded a gcc-4.6.x compiler so beware. I didn't bother trying so beware. :)
Path to set in .profile so that flex gets picked up: /c/MinGW/msys/1.0/bin:/c/MinGW/bin:<....>
This allowed the integer-gmp ./configure to succeed.
