Replying to list, that this indeed makes sense. One thing I identified
is that libidn2 no longer compiles in mingw environment, or in other
environments where libunistring is missing (i.e., the internal
unistring is not sufficient).

Adding the missing items in bootstrap.conf (were already there in a
fixme block), allows compilation if one performs it as make -C lib &&

For some reason lib wouldn't compile, even though the order in is:
SUBDIRS = lib . src doc examples tests po


$ make
cat ./idna-tables-6.3.0.txt | ./ >
mv data.c
  CC       gentr46map.o
gentr46map.c:37:20: fatal error: unistr.h: No such file or directory
 #include <unistr.h>

$ make -C lib && make
