[webkit-help] Compiling webkit on windows.

I've been trying to compile WebKit on Windows by following the
instructions there:

I've installed all the 3rd party packages required as described there:

When I run the command, I get the following output about missing ICU libraries.
I also get errors about Ruby_LIBRARY not being found, even though ruby
is property installed, working from the command line and having set
Ruby_LIBRARY environment variable to where the header files are
located. Research tells me that the Ruby error can be ignored for now.

Could someone be kind enough to let me know what are the steps
required in regards to the missing ICU headers/libs?
that didn't help.

Thank you in advance.
