That doesn't look right.  I have:

/bin/sh ../../ylwrap winprefslex.l lex.yy.c winprefslex.c -- flex -i

$ ./ylwrap  --help
Usage: ylwrap [--help|--version] INPUT [OUTPUT DESIRED]... -- PROGRAM [ARGS]...

So, it looks like maybe something has gone wrong in the autofoolery as it
hasn't found the name of your lex successfully, but has still configured.

I think now might be an appropriate time to ask if you have all the
prerequisites listed in [1]?
