Boost 1.54/libicu 51.2 conflict with pluginlib?

I am trying to get ROS and the MoveIt package installed on openSUSE 12.3, and currently my problem seems to be related to a conflict with some of the dependencies, which cannot be resolved automatically with rosdep on openSUSE. This is my most recent error message:

Reproduce this error by running:
==> /opt/ros/groovy/ make -j2 -l2

Command failed, exiting.

This is the result of the following command, which successfully built the catkin environment previously, but I am rebuilding after updating Boost from v1.49 to v1.54.

sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install-space /opt/ros/groovy --install -DSETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT=OFF

Searching for this issue on Google is not very instructive, but the undefined reference errors all appear to be related to the icu package, and ought to be provided by libicuuc. However, in /usr/lib64 I have

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      14 Jul 15 13:03 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      16 Jul 15 07:56 -> libicuuc ...

A little more digging suggests that libboost_regex does not link to icu when installed from YaST. I've submitted a bug report to openSUSE and will update this post if I get a fix.
