I've not had any luck with avoiding redundant rebuilding as pcre and icu 
updates aren't sent out at the same time. Perhaps someone can say if I'm 
off my rocker, has anyone tried issuing 'portmaster -w -r icu pcre'? 
Perhaps that would avoid the redundant rebuilds?

Of course that would only work if one waits for both updates to come out.
