Looks like the library folder may be incomplete, try running make svnfix to see if you can get that back in order, beyond that it appears you do not have a compatible version of VS installed, be sure to select the C++ workload in the installer.

Actually i’d deal with the VS issue first, without it it doesn’t know what lib folder to grab for you
