Where is lex

I've been trying to compile "fdutils" but the make command fails with an 
error message

	lex: command not found

As fas as I can tell, it's occurs at the following lines in the Makefile:

lex.%.c: %.lex
        lex -P$* $<

My distribution (SuSE 7.2) does not have a command "lex" that I can find, nor 
is it part of the fdutils tarball.  Can anyone tell me where I find "lex"  ?
