I didn't find it a hard way, I just didn't look for any patches when I created 
IPF binaries some time ago. I the memory leaks patch when I went to ICU site 
to download its sources to see what's going on when it calls VM JNI code. 
What I found out is that it calls VM JNI code with a wrong elems pointer and 
to fix the bug we need to patch ICU. The bug is present it 3.6 as well.

So my question was actually, do we need any patches other than memory leaks 
patch to build ICU binaries that we have in SVN currently?
