This looks like you have mixed ICU versions somewhere. The texlive  
source includes ICU 3.4 (slightly modified for XeTeX), but some of  
the source files must have been compiled with headers from ICU 3.6  
(perhaps installed elsewhere on your system?). I'm not sure how this  
would have happened; the TL build should normally use its own private  
copy of ICU.
