I've attached a patch that fixes the build on Windows. It also doesn't
seem to break the build on my Linux box. However, the patch basically
consists of removing an #include statement and removing some library
dependencies (which for some reason don't exist in the Windows
distribution of ICU), so I don't know if it would break something
else. The library compiles without warnings with the patch applied,
though. Maybe Serge could test the patch on his machine?
