Hi Emmanuel,

jfx8u40/WebView (libjfxwebkit.so) doesn't link with icu lib, however it has that option and so it 
contains all the related headers which it nevertheless uses during the build process.

UChar32 was defined as unsigned in older icu versions and it is still that in the jfx8u40/WebView 

As to the failure you've encountered. It seems like you have libxml2 on your system which was 
compiled/installed with icu-enabled option. I'm afraid you should recompile it with icu disabled in 
order to build WebView.

There's a similar issue reported against Qt WebKit port: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82824
