Yeah, this is working for me now. I don't know what went wrong previously.

Thanks for following up.

But the point remains that using --with-system-tzdata is silly on 
Windows. If you're cross-compiling (e.g. building 64bit Postgres on 
32bit Windows), your best bet is probably to build natively and use the 
zic.exe from the native build.  If you're only bulding to get the client 
libraries I guess it doesn't matter, but otherwise it sure does.
