So, I looked into this. Indeed, without the patch, the build fails with:

CMake Error at c-utility/CMakeLists.txt:267 (if):
  if given arguments:

    "WIN32" "AND" "(" "VERSION_EQUAL" "10.0.17763.0" "OR" "VERSION_GREATER" "10.0.17763.0" ")"

  Unknown arguments specified

The problem comes from the fact that ${CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION} is empty.
And the CMake documentation
explains why:

  When the CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME variable is set explicitly to enable cross
  compiling then the value of CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION must also be set
  explicitly to specify the target system version.

We are defining CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME in our toolchain file, but not

So for now, I simply defined CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION locally in
azure-iot-sdk-c, and dropped the patch. Long term, perhaps we should
define CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION in our toolchain file. I'm not sure who is
maintaining our CMake infrastructure these days, Samuel Martin used to
do it, but he is no longer very active.
