Comment (by ken@…):

 I discovered that it uses an internal version of one of the icu libs (icu-
 i18n), and has been doing so for some time.  Only noticed because my
 upgrade on old LFS-7.2 failed with
 ../libjs_static.a(Intl.o): In function
 `js::intl_Collator_availableLocales(JSContext*, unsigned int,
 /scratch/working/mozilla-release/js/src/builtin/Intl.cpp:738: undefined
 reference to `ucol_countAvailable_52'
 and a lot more similar errors. I suspect something in gcc-4.7.1 caused
 that, my builds on gcc-4.8 were ok.  Firefox bug
 [https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=971663] but clearly most
 people are not affected.

 Managed to build it against system icu-52.1 on that system, using
 ac_add_options --with-system-icu

 I have not tried with current BLFS (gcc-4.9, icu-53.1).
