I was suffered from this today on Linux, building ICU from TeX Live with
clang is failing. Fortunately, it seems that ICU build respects CC and
CXX env variables, so I was able to force it to use GCC.

Not sure if we want to do something with this to make sure ICU uses the
same compiler as the rest of the build.
