Me, I don't know. Probably depending on the ICU version used.

No, there is no official way, the libraries used are statically linked  
into xetex. The unofficial way would be to change the version of  
libicu* in the XeTeX sources... but see above! In xetex/libs you have  
the sym-link icu-xetex. It can point to any place. The sources are  
compiled and linked in the xetex/Work tree, which is cleared before a  
new compilation starts.
