Patch to make IcedTea use system provided libicu

IcedTea / OpenJDK ships its several very old version of libicu
(http://icu-project.org/) for unicode text layout. IcedTea could benefit from
using a system provided libicu install, it would streamline security fixes, and
probably pick up bugfixes and improvements from newer libicu releases. Attached
is a quick hack to avoid building the bundled libicu and link against system
libicu instead. Notice that the patch needs some work to make all this
