It doesn't and shouldn't matter what the answer to that question is.
Whether it's because someone is not sure what they want yet so want all
variant, or they generally have a need for all variant. It's a common
and basic option, if you want to build all supported version pass
--build-type=complete. I think it actually say something along that line
in the docs. The user shouldn't have to worry about the details. That's
the whole point of having a catch all option instead of making users
specify each and every variant separately.

Well, it's the same issue as before.

Either, the static combination with ICU that causes the conflict should
not be built, or the static combination should be built without linking
to ICU. With or without a warning message to the user and documentated
in docs.
