I expect a much more erudite answer from a developer at redhat.

To read my email and think oh...I can tell him to eliminate icu from a
build..and that is the only problem reported.  So problem is solved.

That is irritating to read.

As has already been pointed out in the other mail thread you started, the
icudt*.dll was moved from external/icu/ExternalPackage_icu.mk to
external/icu/ExternalPackage_icu_ure.mk already in July.

You can safely assume that almost none of the --with-system-... options will
work on Windows simply because the Windows system does not provide any of
those libraries.

Plus, if you change configure options, especially with --enable-dbgutil, you
usually need to  make clean && make  to force a clean build. In fact the
missing icudtd53.dll may be a result of such mixed build because in a
non-dbgutil build it is icudt53.dll instead.

Git has no notion of trunk, you probably mean the master branch, but
apparently you're trying to build a quite old snapshot.
