Right, but that's only an issue with the new build script if gcc is
installed in a user-defined location, and ICU is in the same location. In
this case the build script will needlessly add the "std" include and lib
paths to the command line, which as previously noted may mess up wrapper
headers and the like. I don't know how to fix that easily at present, what
does Boost.Python do, it has a similar problem - ah I see, python
headers/binaries never end up in the std locations anyway is that right?
