Description

In https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1239083 Mozilla implemented build changes that resulted in an ICU related binary being shipped in the source tree. It is a pre-compiled thing to avoid generating it twice e.g. in a cross-compilation scenario. We should investigate whether we want to ship that blob.

It was a surprise that you'd decided to fix #13419 not by backporting this solution. And now there is this strange ticket about trust to Mozilla...
Of course, if you don't trust, then you'll run "update-icu script to do a local ICU build with configure+make to generate a new data file when updating to a new ICU." And ship the blob.

Not strictly needed for getting Tor Browser on ESR 52 compiled.
