I'm afraid the readme is out of date.  What you need to do is:

Install the libicu-dev package also build-essential, automake, libtool 
and do a checkout of SWORD SVN. Then just run autogen.sh and usrinst.sh.

svn checkout https://crosswire.org/svn/sword/trunk sword  gets you the 
latest version.

God bless,        Barry.
