No, it is just an optimization flag for the flex based scanner.  
By disabling the counting of line numbers, you will gain yet some
performance. The flex based scanner is up to 10 times faster
than the Erlang based scanner.

The flex based scanner is built if flex is available.

Even if the flex based scanner is built and installed,
the Erlang based scanner can still be used. In fact each
Megaco connection may have its own scanner.
