icu-config is not part of coreutils, so you might want to ask on the the
icu mailing list for more help. It looks like a bug in their assumptions,
mixing and matching make (specified by POSIX) alongside the Microsoft
compiler toolchain (with a poorly named linker named link). In a pure
POSIX environment, link takes exactly two arguments and creates hard
links; since you are using make, you should not expect the Microsoft
behavior from a program named link.exe.
> LINK.EXE /subsystem:console /DLL /nologo /base:"0x4ad00000" /NOENTRY
> udt.lib /out:icudt34.dll stubdata.o
> LINK: extra operand `/nologo'
> Try `LINK --help' for more information.
> make: *** [icudt34.dll] Error 1
> make: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/c/icu/source/stubdata'
And this shows you are running on cygwin - in which case, why aren't you
using gcc instead of the proprietary Microsoft linker? For further help
on using the cygwin-provided open source compiler, consider asking on the
cygwin mailing list, cygwin AT cygwin DOT com.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
