Configure.pl does not complain about missing headers, does it?
Can you please retry with the latest version of parrot (>= r7817),
run Configure.pl with --verbose-step=ICU and provide its output?

No, but I tried it on an old Win98 box with VC6 or so, it worked there.
(The problem though was that each time parrot is invoked, "No such file or
directory" appears in the output, but the result looks okay nevertheless -
have to dig into it another time...)

parrot builds fine on win32--vc-7.1-perl-5.8.6 for me, without icu. i have
been building this way for some time now.
i have not tried with icu for the past several days.

I've updated the documentation with patch [perl #34986]. With these
updated instructions, Parrot w/ ICU builds fine on Win32, VC++ 7.1,
ICU 3.2. At least I hope so. ;-)
