AFAIK nullptr is part of c++0x and available on gcc >= 4.6.0 in c++0x as
a built-in. It might be available in non c++0x-mode with an extra
include, but as far as I know its not in earlier gccs, so a
static_cast<pointer_type*>(0) is probably the best way to go when it

As an aside, I tried a quick-hack on the icu issue with adding in a
revert patch of the upstream icu conversion of their .vcproj files
to .vxproj files during their 4.6 cycle, but the fixups of that turned
out to be non-trivial as well, and looked as tricky to pull off as

a) writing a full set of nmake .mak files anyway, or
b) writing a .vxproj parser to generate them automatically anyway.
