[Interest] Help with Qt 5.6.1-1 32-bit build errors

I'm trying to build Qt 5.6.1-1 32-bit licensed static using Visual Studio 
2013.  I am configuring with the following command:

    configure -commercial -confirm-license -static -prefix
    Q:\Qt\5.6.1\32_static -mp -release -nomake examples -no-qml-debug
    -no-compile-examples -nomake tests -opengl desktop

I have successfully built 64-bit versions, static and DLL, licensed and open 
source, with similar config commands just prior to attempting the 32-bit 
builds.  At some point in the 32-bit build, I'm getting:

    LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file

I read that the webkit had been removed from the 5.6 distribution (I'm using 
the source tarballs), but it looks like there's some kind of dependency upon 
it anyway.  I configured the 64-bit builds with ICU, but I did not with 32-bit 
because we don't want the webkit builds in the 32-bit static.  I tried adding 
the '-skip qtwebkit' command (which works fine for prior Qt versions), but 
then I get the different build error:

    Attempting to skip non-existent module qtwebkit.
    Error: File Makefile doesn't exist.

Removing '-skip qtwebkit' from the config line leads me to the link error with 
the image format plug-in.

Do I now need to provide ICU to the 32-bit builds even though we /aren't/ 
building the webkit module, or is there some new means of disabling the webkit 
as part of that type of build?I'd appreciate any insights here.
