Do you have a sample code or steps to reproduce? Maybe file a bug, so
maintainer can help filter out GNUstep-specific issues.

devel/icu is built --with-data-packaging=archive which means the data
ends up in icudt* file e.g.,

$ pkg info -l icu | fgrep icudt | xargs du -Ah
 25M    /usr/local/share/icu/59.1/icudt59l.dat
