Rather than default to not build with ICU or error and tell me I need to expressly specify --without-icu, configure quietly said it was assuming I had a version prior to 2.1 and was continuing anyway.  I don't know exactly when that version came out, but it seems to have been before 2004. Maybe we shouldn't assume its presence but rather error if icu-config isn't found and/or default to build without it when it is not found.1.6.2 idea?

This has been a problem for a long time, and has been reported before.
I have no idea how to fix it.

Maybe set SWORD_PATH? (but why are you installing there??)
