Why can't I install icu?

Icu is a necessary dependency for Gimp, but I can't get it to install.  
I checked UPDATING and it states that icu4 is now deprecated, and one 
should install /devel/icu.  But when I try to do that the file that is 
downloaded is icu4c, and the install goes along until it chokes with 
this error message:

******* [Total error count:     1]
  Errors in
Elapsed Time: 00:00:48.205
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/devel/icu.

Very frustrating.  I need to get Gimp onto my computer, and I can 
install it as a package, but if I try to upgrade the program the upgrade 
always chokes on icu at the same place, and with the same error message.
