So, I looked at config.status, and modified the LFS/BLFS one to use GCC / G++ (thereby removing all references

Compilation completed successfully, this time.

In Conclusion:
If LLVM + CLANG is installed prior to ICU, you *may* run into a problem in compilation...  ;)
Since BLFS is designed to be followed in a lateral manner, perhaps this condition is worthy of testing and
perhaps the addition of a note on the ICU-50.1.2 page?
I wouldn't know if this issue was due to a condition present in my build (or a potential bug in CLANG); but since
ICU actively looks for CLANG during ./configure, perhaps these two versions should be prohibited from playing

Armin, Thanks for your question about CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS; that set me thinking on the right track.
