The license of PyICQt seems to be GPL version 2 (without the "any later"
addition) but if you have a look at e.g. src/chardet_utf/ you
see that there is a license mix. "LGPL 2.1 + any later version" and some
Netscape license tags. Do the Netscape license tags still count? If it is a
rewrite why not remove them?

Code in chardet_utf is ported to python encoding detection engine from Mozilla.
Netscape Navigator codebase was distributed under Netscape Public License, which
after was renamed to Mozilla Public License. Currently based on it Mozilla Firefox
distributed under MPL/GPL/LGPL. 
LGPL 2.1 compatible with GPL 2. 
No problems here

But the MPL is not compatible with the GPL
( Does that mean that PyICQt is
dual licensed under GPL2 and MPL? If so, it should be made clear in the COPYING and
README files.

No. It licensed under GPLv2
