I just encountered the same while updating the bundled ICU to 70.1

(btw, you'd encounter more build breakage in a debug build with
--enable-werror because of missing handling of new script and block

Me neither..

Not sure yet. I temporarily adapted that one check failing (the other
passes) now in the change https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/125322

The handling of Lao script word break likely wasn't implemented in
earlier ICUs, or the test was implemented when ICU 51 was current,
I didn't chase it down. I excluded the one check *only* for 70
(not >=70) so if it doesn't get fixed (either on our or ICU's side)
we'll get slapped again with the next major update.
