 From mingw32-spice.spec:

# workaround: i686-pc-mingw32-pkg-config doesn't check 
export PROTOCOL_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags spice-protocol)"
export PROTOCOL_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs spice-protocol)"

The source rpm also has a patch which will save you some work.
If you manage to get a working spicec.exe send patches to the list please.
