Nessus install on mdk 9.1 errors w/ Neither lex nor flex are installed

Any idea what lex or flex is, are they apps I can get off of the MDK install disks?
I get error "Neither lex nor flex are installed" when trying to install nessus.

configure: error: *** Neither lex nor flex are installed - can not continue
configure: error: ./configure failed for libpcap-nessus
