Attaching a diff.  (Since this is the first time, I've used the 'git 
diff <master_HEAD>...<branch_HEAD>' command, please check for validity.

I conducted the following tests:
Linux/i386; ICU is installed
a. no particular command-line options: 'make test' PASS
b. --without-icu: 'make test' PASS

Darwin/PPC; ICU is not (to my or Configure's knowledge) installed:
a. no particular command-line options: 'make test' PASS
