icu 50 and how to identify dependents

It's similar to what's been going on all day with jpeg and tiff. Ports that depend on jasper also link with libjpeg, and so they need a revbump now. Ports that depend on GraphicsMagick also link with libjpeg and libtiff; I've had to revbump php-gmagick for that. Curiously I haven't had to do the same for php-imagick, which uses ImageMagick.

Is this a fault in GraphicsMagick, jasper, harfbuzz, etc.? For example:

$ GraphicsMagick-config --libs
-lGraphicsMagick -llcms2 -ltiff -lfreetype -ljasper -ljpeg -lpng15 -llzma -lbz2 -lxml2 -lz -lm -lpthread

$ grep -- -licu /opt/local/lib/
dependency_libs=' -R/opt/local/lib -L/opt/local/lib /opt/local/lib/ /opt/local/lib/ /opt/local/lib/ /opt/local/lib/ -lresolv /opt/local/lib/ /opt/local/lib/ -lc /opt/local/lib/ -lz -lbz2 /opt/local/lib/ -licule -licuuc -licudata'

Should these libraries not be listed there? If so should we fix GraphicsMagick et al to not list these libraries? We then still have to revbump everything using them to get them to no longer link with those libraries.
