Is that the only package that depends on ICU-2.x? How (in)compatible are 
ICU-2.x vs. 3.2?

Reason I'm poking into this is that java/jikes is severely broken when 
using the -encoding option, and I was investigation the option of using ICU 
instead. Jikes' configure script looks for both, but does not recognize 
icu-3.2 (probably won't accept 2.x either, though).
