[Interest] Source build on windows

I'm building from source on windows. Have followed the instructions at
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/windows-building.html and
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/windows-requirements.html, installed runtime
and build dependencies (ICU 53.1, active perl, ruby, python 2.7.8, certain
they are accessible on PATH), installed the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 and SDK 7.1
and compiler update, DirectX SDK, but when I attempt to build the sources
from the single zip qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.3.1.tar.gz, I eventually
run into an error which others have reported in the past (someone posted
the error message posted at https://gist.github.com/azbesthu/3699271) as a
missing build dependency in some project file. But the few hits on google
seem to indicate that the problem has already been resolved. Has anyone
been successful building from source on windows, including qtwebkit?

The bld.bat script I have been using is here:

:: may need to change these depending on environment:
CALL "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Bin\SetEnv.cmd" /x64

set QMAKESPEC=win32-msvc2010

cd C:\Users\darren\qt5

set SRC_DIR=C:\Users\darren\qt5
set PREFIX=C:\Users\darren\qtlib

:: set path to find resources shipped with qt-5:
set PATH=%SRC_DIR%\gnuwin32\bin;%PATH%
set PATH=%SRC_DIR%\qtrepotools\bin;%PATH%
set PATH=%SRC_DIR%\qtbase\bin;%PATH%

:: make sure we can find ICU:
set LIB=%PREFIX%\libs;%LIB%

:: this needs to be CALLed due to an exit statement at the end of configure:
CALL configure -prefix %PREFIX% ^
      -libdir %PREFIX%\lib ^
      -bindir %PREFIX%\lib\qt5\bin ^
      -headerdir %PREFIX%\include\qt5 ^
      -archdatadir %PREFIX%\lib\qt5 ^
      -datadir %PREFIX%\share\qt5 ^
      -opensource ^
      -confirm-license ^
      -no-warnings-are-errors ^
      -nomake examples ^
      -nomake tests ^
      -fontconfig ^
      -qt-libpng ^

nmake install
