Error trying to build a static version of Qt 5.8 with ICU support

  • Hello, I'm new here, I've been using Qt for some time and consulting this forum, but this is my first question.
    I'm trying to compile a static version of Qt 5.8 (I obtained the source with git) on Windows 10 x64 with MSVC 2015, with ICU and OpenSSL support, I already compiled all builds of OpenSSL 1.1.0c and ICU 58.2, including a static build of ICU (with dynamic runtime) and I've installed all the requirements. During the configuration the test for ICU fails, if I remove the "-icu" option or try to configure a shared build, the configuration is successful, these are the commands I've used to configure Qt in the command line:

    SET "MSVC_ENV_BAT="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat""
    SET "MSVC_ARCH_SPEC=amd64"
    SET "ICU_ROOT=C:\APPS\PROGRAMMING\LIBRARIES\icu\icu-58.2-vs2015-static-dynrt"
    SET "QT5_SRC_ROOT=C:\APPS\PROGRAMMING\Qt\Compiled\src64"
    SET "QT5_PREFIX=C:\APPS\PROGRAMMING\Qt\Qt5.8-64\5.8\msvc2015_64_static"
    %comspec% /k "%MSVC_ENV_BAT%" %MSVC_ARCH_SPEC%
    SET "PATH=%PATH%;%QT5_SRC_ROOT%\qtbase\bin;%QT5_SRC_ROOT%\gnuwin32\bin;%QT5_SRC_ROOT%\qtrepotools\bin";%ICU_ROOT%\bin64;%OPEN_SSL_ROOT%\bin64
    SET "INCLUDE=%INCLUDE%;%ICU_ROOT%\include";%OPEN_SSL_ROOT%\include
    SET "LIB=%LIB%;%OPEN_SSL_ROOT%\lib64;%ICU_ROOT%\lib64"
    configure -recheck-all -verbose -static -debug-and-release -make libs -nomake examples -nomake tools -prefix "%QT5_PREFIX%" -platform win32-msvc2015 ^
    -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -gif -ico -qt-zlib -qt-pcre -sql-sqlite -sql-odbc -direct2d -opensource -confirm-license -opengl desktop ^
    -optimized-qmake -qt-freetype -openssl -openssl-linked -I "%OPEN_SSL_ROOT%\include" -L "%OPEN_SSL_ROOT%\lib64" ^
    OPENSSL_LIBS_DEBUG="libsslMDd.lib libcryptoMDd.lib" OPENSSL_LIBS_RELEASE="libsslMD.lib libcryptoMD.lib" ^
    -icu -I "%ICU_ROOT%\include" -L "%ICU_ROOT%\lib64"

    The error I get:


    Checking for ICU...
    Trying source 0 (type inline) of library icu ...
    Project ERROR: 'inline' source in library 'icu' does not specify 'libs'.
    Qmake failed, return code 3

    Any help would be appreciated. Best regards, Diego.
