It turns out the Debian's flex-old 2.5.4a-1 has the snippet below in its debian/changeLog why is apparently why I never ran into the bug even though I attempted to test with both 2.5.4a and a self-compiled 2.5.31.

flex (2.5.4a-15) unstable; urgency=low
  * flex -o "ddd" doesn't write to the file "ddd", instead it tries to
    write to the file "" (yes, blank) and read from "ddd". I changed the
    main.c to use the next arg as the output file name if the next arg
    does not start with a -.
closes: Bug#122581

Again, sorry to all and thanks again for Carlo and Bernd for fixing it.
