As admin (or somebody with shell access) by running "pg_config 
--configure" should show "--with-icu" as one of configure parameters.
As user you could try SELECTing upper() or lower() on some text with 
more exotic chars (anything non-ASCII should do) in database which has 
UTF8 encoding. If it works then ICU support is there.
