You add the <server> tag to the <service id="icq.myserver"> section of
your jabber.xml. For reference, here's what I have in mine:

        <service id="icq.gunters.org">
          <icqtrans xmlns="jabber:config:icqtrans">
            <instructions>Please enter your ICQ number (in the "username" field
            <search>Search for ICQ users</search>
              <FN>ICQ Transport</FN>
              <DESC>This is the ICQ Transport</DESC>

The <server/> entry will override the
  #define DEFAULT_ICQ_HOST ""
line in icqtransport.h file.
