Changing version to '26'.

Remove flex patch, no longer needed

The flex patch is no longer needed with Fedora 26, and it is now causing builds to fail.  I am attaching a patch to remove it.
It might be possible to adjust the patch so it works with older versions of Fedora, but looking at how often this package is updated, I figured that wasn't really needed.
This is a blocker for some projects. If this isn't fixed withing two weeks, we will have a proven packager merge this patch in and build it.
