First, I'm forwarding your email to the list. I hope you don't mind. I
think other people may find it useful.
I have to say that these weekly news are doing their job great!
I have already sent in the patches. They were not included, mostly
because Alexander is away.
When they are included, you will need any fairly recent ICU installed
locally on your machine. You can get the sources for the library at
http://oss.ibm.com/icu/. I would go for their latest released version
(2.5), rather than the beta. Unfortunetly (and this has been a major
consideration against using it, but other factors were stronger), ICU
has no packages for platforms other than Debian.
You don't have to give configure any explicit option (well, assuming
Alexander doesn't change anything, that is). Notice that you actually
need to compile ICU, however. Merely adding the headers is not enough,
as it is STATICALLY linked to gdi. On the bright side, this doesn't add
any difficult dependancies to wine.
Hope this helps,
