Avoid installation of MONTSTEROUS ICU library with light-weight DMs like XFCE as it unconditionaly sucked in to system via pango->harfbuzz->icu dependency chain.
This patch strip off ICU-dependent part of harfbuzz into separate port named hardbuzz-icu. Grepping shows that the only users of harfbuzz icu backend are libreoffice, chromium and webkit-gtk, so resulting patch is not very big.

Assign over to portmgr@ for exp-run.
Please run a exp-run for this patch. I have checked all the ports that define a dependency on harfbuzz. Just want to be sure to catch any "hidden" harfbuzz-icu users.
Exp-run looks fine (done on ports/head@439347)
