Do not know much about the rest and what I am saying here might be wrong too - but there are two versions of ICU floating about - official ICU which we near always compile against and then a CrossWire maintained icu-sword fork which has various features which might or might not be useful to various people. I think mostly improved transliterators, which are submitted to ICU but might not yet be in official builds. Chris Little is the man who knows most about that. He is doing his PhD thesis at this moment, so might need a direct approach before he answers.

So, whatever the exact role of CrossWire's ICU is, if there is a reference to icu-sword then it refers to our own version which should be a compile time option, but not a necessity.
