With apologies, the docs and code went out of synch for 1.44 - and I forgot
to add a "force ICU not to be used" option :-(

This has been fixed for forthcoming 1.45.

Another workaround would be to add an #error to
libs/regex/build/has_icu_build.cpp to force the ICU config check to fail.

HTH, John.
