There is a script that runs at the start of the WTFGenerated build (build-generated-files.sh) that checks for the presence of the lib32/libicuuc.lib file.  It creates a file in your build folder ("${CONFIGURATIONBUILDDIR}/include/private/ICUVersion.h"), which governs whether it is looking for versioned (old-stye) or new-style.

Even though you corrected the library paths, this ICUVersion.h file is probably messing up your build.

Try deleting it (or just changing the "#define U_DISABLE_RENAMING 0" to "#define U_DISABLE_RENAMING 1", and then do a full rebuild.
