Build the port and dependencies WITH_DEBUG=1 then use gdb (from ports)
or lldb to get a backtrace. truss/ktrace only captures system calls i.e.,
rarely useful when debugging application crashes.

devel/icu has --with-data-packaging=archive which concatenates all
locale data into a single file e.g., icudt61l.dat.

Maybe ICU always iterates over all places locale data can be. Unless no
data is found it's unlikely to be the reason of the crash.
