I wonder how people address this in general.  Perhaps we could start
xvfb in a pre-check phase if that’s enough?

What’s this?!  Would be good to know where it comes from.  Normally our
glibc doesn’t look for (see ‘glibc-no-ld-so-cache.patch’.)

libicu4c is a dependency of Qt, right?

If so, I would make sure that it’s NEEDed by, and that it’s in
its RUNPATH.  To do that, run:

  objdump -x | grep -E '(NEED|PATH)'

If it’s not NEEDed, then -licu4c must be added on the link command for

If it’s not in the RUNPATH, then -Wl,-rpath=/path/to/icu4c/lib must be
added to the ld flags.
