Hi Akim,

Welcome to the challenges in the no-man's-land between GNU land and windows.
;)   I really have no clue about travis, but below rather windows related

LEX=win_flex. might be an
alternative to choco's winflexbison (which is a nice windows port of bison
and flex, bypassing fork and m4, in particular, which do not exist as such
on windows); its exe's are called win_flex.exe and win_bison.exe. doxygen I
did not check.

BTW: Which shell is used? Shipped with the git package? You might bump into
the perl-is-missing issue, later on.
