old to recognise the flag. it took some effort to understand where the
flag is coming from (I didn't notice the icu buildlink being included
via, and thought I checked every dependency, and now need to
check dependencies of dependencies).

It's a slight duplication but I think the end result is much simpler,
and we should avoid introducing potentially breaking flags via
