don't give that much on that issue, we had the same problem while
testing xpcshell with autopkg.
It turns out that xpcshell searches for icudt58dl.dat in
/usr/share/thunderbird (in the opposite to the thunderbird binary that
looks in /usr/lib/thunderbird). The current prepared build uses the
internal icu18n implementation instead of using the system library, this is
for Stretch to old. Because of this we've added a extra symlink in the
-dev package and the xpcshell testing is working again.

I can image you've been hitting by the same problem. Otherwise wait
until we switch back to system packages for building thunderbird. It's a
bit annoying to search issues related to the use of internal shipped

Urgs, yes a stupid typo. Christoph has changed this in preparation for
the upload too. thunderbird should be in NEW soon.
