windows system dlls are not necessary for compilation.

they seem definitely necessary for linking though, see below:

No.  All you need is the win32/lib/*.def files.  It just happens to
work with *.dll too (since only recently btw).

Taking a random c program, . is the directory with tcc sources
compiled as above, and libtcc1.a :

libtcc1.a needs to be in win32/lib (of course)

        In file included from win32/include/stdio.h:9:
        win32/include/_mingw.h:21: error: include file 'stddef.h' not found

tcc/include/* needs to be copied to tcc/win32/include (see Makefile or

        > ./tcc -Iwin32 -Iwin32/include ~/c-src/card.c -L . -L ../win-bin/

this works fine

Surely works.  But is horribly redundant ;)

Basically with CONFIG_TCCDIR set correctly (and with i386-win32-tcc
installed) all you need (and ever should need) is:

$ cd win32/examples
$ i386-win32-tcc hello_win.c

This produces hello_win.exe that can be run on windows or under wine.
