Is a Lex and Yacc plugin available?

There was some discussion on the old forum, but it’s unclear if the author was able to get it working. I’m being asked to port a large body of C/C++ code to the Gradle build environment and without support for lex and yacc this could be quite painful.

If such a plugin does not exist, what would be a good work around? Is it possible to declare arbitrary dependencies that are themselves satisfied by executing a makefile?

Bump… No ideas on this?
