Enable ICU support

  • I want to enable ICU support in order to compile QtWebKit for Raspbian Jessie.

    there are the requirements for Qt WebKit:

    apt-get install flex bison gperf libicu-dev libxslt-dev ruby

    but the configure program doesn't find it:

    ICU .................... no
    which other packages are required?

    Are you doing a native build or cross-compiling ?

  • @SGaist cross-compiling on x64 Debian machine. I see the checking fails due to this error:
