net-im/gnomeicu should be marked BROKEN and DEPRECATED, then removed. It's because:

a) runtime is broken. whenever i try to start it, i get:
You have reached this dialog because we detected you do not have a proper configuration key installed for GnomeICU. The possible cause is that you forgot to install the configuration keys from gnomeicu.schemas. Please contact your package maintainer about that, or you can contact us directly at gnomeicu-support at lists.sourceforge.net

The configuration key in question is: /apps/gnomeicu/general/themes/icons

The program will now close...

There is more recent version - 0.99.16, but it suffers the same problem.

b) project is discontinued. 
As you can guess from the date of the last release, we haven't done anything in the last few years. But don't despair, I've been working on bringing a better IM experience to the desktop. And with Empathy now providing integrated Multi-Protocol (including ICQ) Instant Messenger and VoIP in GNOME 3, I think we can say Mission Accomplished.

So users (if any) should be recommended to move to net-im/empathy.
