I've merged the necessary changes; release branch should now build
with no annoyances. On a related topic, I get this output:

Performing configuration checks

    - has_icu builds : yes
    - ../config//has_gcc_visibility builds : yes
    - ../config//has_long_double_support builds : yes

Mind if I modify this to be this:

Performing configuration checks

    - ICU : yes
    - GCC visibility : yes
    - long double : yes

Not necessary for 1.45, though.
