    1/ It's easy to rebuild a dll.a for the mingw32 linker 
    from the dll and def file

    dlltool -D xxx.dll -d xxx.def -l xxxdll.a

    if you do not have the def file you can recreate 
    one with pexports.

    pexports.exe $1.dll > $1.def 
    dlltool --def $1.def --dllname $1.dll --output-lib $1.dll.a

    I use the icu4c-4_2_1 from msvc9 + dll.a recreated as above 
    I also have my own cross compiled icu4c-4_2_1 but started 
    from the msvc9 thinking that mine could induce troubles. 

    2/ which version of glib do you use ? 
    I use   glib_2.22.0-1_win32.zip but have seen that 
    glib_2.22.1-1_win32.zip  was available with 
    a BUG correction in 
       596314 g_utf16_to_utf8 returns an invalid UTF8 string
    which is maybe an important change for us since 
    EditorClientGtk.cpp uses this function.
