You have used a fully-qualified identifier of Flx_lex inside Flx_lex
itself (for example, Flx_lex.foobar).  This is a violation of the 
rules of O'Caml : the name of the current module is not visible inside
the body of the module itself.  The native-code linker doesn't notice 
it is restricted to a flat name space.

The bug is in a part that you have written by hand.
