It seems to me that both /usr/local/lib/opera/liboperagtk2.so and /usr/local/lib/opera/liboperakde4.so look for those specific version of the icu libraries.

There is not much to do freebsd-side except for...
1. have the 4.8 icu version installed alongside the new one
2. (maybe) use symlinks to trick opera to use the new one and hope that there is enough compatibility between both version of icu
3. (maybe) disable kde and gtk backends
4. ask nicely opera for an update
