I had no  problem building harfbuzz 0.9.7 with icu  50.1 .  It's worth
noting that icu 50.1 installs a new versin of the .so:

    $ ldd /usr/lib/libharfbuzz.so.0.904.0 | grep icu
            libicule.so.49 => /usr/lib/libicule.so.49 (0xb74a0000)
            libicuuc.so.49 => /usr/lib/libicuuc.so.49 (0xb7332000)
            libicudata.so.49 => /usr/lib/libicudata.so.49 (0xb6211000)
    $ ldd /usr/lib/libharfbuzz.so.0.907.0 | grep icu
            libicule.so.50 => /usr/lib/libicule.so.50 (0xb7548000)
            libicuuc.so.50 => /usr/lib/libicuuc.so.50 (0xb73da000)
            libicudata.so.50 => /usr/lib/libicudata.so.50 (0xb6006000)

... so you  need to recompile to link against  the newer libraries and
removing the older libraries will break anything you didn't recompile.
