Are you building from scratch (i.e. after a make clean) or incrementally
inside last years build ? If the second it might be necessary to do a
make clean after this length of time and try again.

There is, but while --with-system-icu should work, you'd definitely have
to do a make clean before using different --with-system options.
Typically just ./autogen.sh && make is the recommended approach.
