Latest -current update broke AlienBob's plasma 5

Running Slack64-current with the latest (November) plasma 5 version from AlienBob. The latest Slackware-current update breaks the KDE desktop. X-server will not start after entering startx. I got three errors about not being found due to the icu update. Found the corresponding files in /usr/lib64 and linked to and that problem went away. Now I get an undefined symbol in libQt5. The undefined symbol ends in 56 so I figure it is related to libQt5 being built with the older icu in place. Has anyone got a fix for this? I figure it must have happened to anyone running -current with Eric's Plasma 5 from November. Thanks in advance.

Packages need to be rebuilt against the new icu4c. This will certainly be done but need some time. Spotting which binaries need to be rebuilt would probably help. So please elaborate about these three errors, telling for what programs this occurred.
