Faster, yes. Earlier, no. It is not possible to do the two rebuilds
independently, because boost itself depends on icu. Because we were
ready with the icu build at about the same time the boost rebuild
started, we would have to wait for it to finish. It would also mean that
15-20 packages that depend on both boost and icu would be rebuilt twice.
