Sorry for those who have seen this in other threads.

To find and fix these issues:
Install sysutils/bsdadmonscripts (If you use pkgng, pleaqse be sure
that you have the latest version!)
# pkg_libchk -o | grep libicu | cut -f1 -d: | sort | uniq > somefile
# portmaster -D `cat somefile`

This will update all ports that are still linked to the old icu
libraries. This should be a very short list as only a handful of ports
link directly to these libraries. Many more depend on these ports, but
don't directly link to libicu sharables and don't need re-building.
