No, a local build with x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc works fine.
Tested with 57.1-2, but also with recent versions of icu.

A good indicator of a broken installation is a small icudata57.dll:

$ ls -l /usr/*/sys-root/mingw/bin/icudata57.dll
-rwxr-xr-x 1 25680896 Nov 10  2016
/usr/i686-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin/icudata57.dll
-rwxr-xr-x 1    15872 Nov 10  2016
/usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin/icudata57.dll

The (good) file for 32 bit is much larger than the (broken) file for 64 bit.
