These 2 options:

   --without-toolkit-scroll-bars --with-x-toolkit=no

are meaningless in the w32 build, and shouldn't change anything.
Please for starters reconfigure without them and rebuild.

Also, instead of "--enable-checking" and CPPFLAGS=-DGLYPH_DEBUG=1,
please use just this:

You cannot disable the scroll bars at build time on Windows, only at
run time.  Once inside Emacs, "M-x scroll-bar-mode RET" should remove
the scroll bars.

Doesn't happen to me.  If rebuilding as described above doesn't help,
please run Emacs under GDB, reproduce the crash, and post the
backtrace as part of a full bug report (using "M-x report-emacs-bug").

Filing a bug report will also collect and report additional
information about your build which is necessary for analyzing the bug.

Scroll bars are supported on Windows and do work.
