Thanks for the quick reply.

In the svn link below it shows ICU version as 4.6(which is the latest
release http://site.icu-project.org/download)

Is it not possible to only build icu for TeXlive, instead of building whole
TeXlive as mentioned in previous mail? Please suggest.

I searched in Texlive installed directory in my system for this ICU library.
But didn't found any. Please suggest how can I confirm which version of ICU
is used in the current TeXLive installation.
