This usually indicates that upstream forked the library (or that the
depend on this particular version of the API).  I think it’s better to
comment the configure flag with a FIXME and have a version of Icecat
that is usable than a version of Icecat that immediately crashes when
you start it.

In any case I think it would be good to file a bug report upstream with
information about the exact version of ICU that we’re building with.
