When building Qt from sources you should better use newest available version, e.g. 64.1 for ICU. It doesn't really matter what version is used in official binaries.
> In detail: With Qt 5.6.2, I used ICU version 57.x. Since then, ICU seemed to change quite a bit (at least with version 60, introducing namespaces). Thus I was wondering if I should use ICU version 62-1, which was the latest version when 5.12.0-alpha1 came out or if I should go back to ICU version 59.
