I'd suggest you to build it from the provided solutions
both debug and release versions - makes it all much easier
especially for multi-variant builds.

AFAIK provided ICU libraries are release only.

So build it with provided solutions it shouldn't
take too long.

First of all if ICU is not found it would be build automatically without it.

You can also use explicitly in command line.

I'm not sure that layout=system is actually should be used on windows
as you require mangled names for different binary incompatible versions
like import lib, static library debug and release.

AFAIK layout=system is used on Posix platforms where no need to
"over-mangle" the library names as there is no binary incompatibilities
between debug and release versions.
