Well I'm glad to say that the output problem was just a minor problem, 
the cat and grep worked fine when sending the output to the terminal and 
I just copied it and pasted it into gedit.  And indeed pkg_libchk is by 
far the best solution, if I was to update every package that depended on 
icu I would have to update 239 packages which discouraged me right away, 
by running pkg_libchk the amount of packages to be updated was reduced 
to 71, wrote a quick script and left it running overnight and those 
packages got updated and by god I don't have any more problems with  Nice little tool.

One more question.  I see that there is no man page for pkg_libchk, how 
do I find out more about its options and switches?  What command or 
commands does it rely upon?
