I tried to build doxygen from source, but kept getting the error : "flex: can't find File".
It turns out, as I'm building from within "C:\Program Files", the rule file doesn't handle spaces in the paths. This can be fixed by changing the switch definitions and command line for this rule.

So the output switch should be: -o"[value]"
and the command line: flex [AllOptions] [AdditionalOptions] "[inputs]"

The quotes allow for spaces.

Unfortunately, runbison.bat has the same issue - I don't yet know how to fix this.

As a general rule: using spaces in files or directories is asking for problems.

Changed version 'latest' to '1.8.2-SVN' so I can remove 'latest' as an option as it is a moving target.
