Hello listers and lurkers,

On MIPS and 32-bit ARM platforms, 'icu4c' is built with
'--with-data-packaging=archive'.  The effect is that the locale data is
stored in a single "icudt__.dat" instead of in the shared library:

There are no comments mentioning why this is the case, and reading the
commit log gives me the impression that it was added as a workaround.

So, can we remove it?  Should we remove it?

The rationale for this proposal is that ICU tests are failing when using
the "archive" packaging instead of library:
