apparently it's a bug in the build infrastructure - both xetex and
bibtexu are using the same ICU libraries, but --disable-xetex
incorrectly disables the build of ICU (when bibtexu is enabled).
Hopefully Peter will fix it.

you can pass configure options --with-fontconfig-includes and
--with-fontconfig-libdir to specify non-standard location of fontconfig

(or if you have pkg-config binary which is aware of fontconfig, you can
put it into the PATH, - then configure will automatically find out
fontconfig's locations from there).
