The version of ICU I have is, so I am not sure if
that is version 4, or 3.8, or what... Let me hunt for a readme, ah,
so it is 3.8. Well, in the windows version at least of 3.8, the
libraries had those different names. I apparently last built that on
October 18th, 2007, so yea, a bit old by now. I will rebuild with the
latest ICU soon to verify the names are correct again.
