To check if an /icu project is known to Boost.Build, and if so, use it.

Even though my Boost.Build skills are certainly very far to match Vladimir's, I
still managed to create BBv2 build scripts for more than a dozen 3rd party open

is just the next one on my list.

Will not make a difference for me as my projects use BB anyway.
