PKGBUILD is outdated; the following patch should be applied.

(tl;dr: comment out line#37 & line#40, and line#65 should be replaced as: install -Dm644 ${srcdir}/${_pkgbase}-release-${_pkgmajor}-${_pkgminor}/icu4c/license.html ${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/license.html)

I get the same error as h3b. There is no maintainer left to fix :(

Anybody has a suggestion?

Rather than forcing GCC, I added clang as a make dependency. It appears icu favoured clang for its C++11 support at the time.

From icu50's readme.html:

<h3>The default compilers have changed</h3>

ICU has changed the compilers chosen by default. If the clang and clang++ compilers are available, those will be used instead of gcc and g++. If the clang compilers are not available, then gcc and g++ will be used just as before. The clang++ compiler provides C++11 support and some optimizations that are helpful to ICU. The API remains the same between these two sets of compilers, but ICU can internally leverage language features and optimizations that are available in clang++.

I need to apply the following patch to build: - ./configure --prefix=/usr \ + CC=gcc CXX=g++ ./configure --prefix=/usr \

I added a patch to change it to an actual NULL check, just like more recent versions do it.
