I don't think this is true for the macOS build but the Windows binaries can be cross-compiled under Linux. The only downside I see to that is that it's not signed nor is there an installer generated. So it sounds more like this is just a decision based on time vs GNU philosophy.

Also, to the person that's hosting the unofficial binaries; it looks like your link to the source is broken: https://casualgamer.ca/index.php/download/55/ leads to a "Download does not exist" page.

People wonder why Rubén Rodríguez discontinued Windows and macOS releases for IceCat after version 38.8.0. I asked him to clarify this on https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/ which he updated immediately:

    "Note that building binary packages for Windows and macOS currently requires non-free software, so we no longer distribute binary releases for those platforms."

Unofficial download links for macOS and Windows are listed in https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/IceCat#tab=Details
