You can set an event to recur on the second to last week of the month, but not directly through iCal's user interface.
Make an event on the second to last last Thursday of the month, then set it to repeat (custom) on the last Thursday of each month. Drag the event to the desktop and delete it from iCal. Drop the desktop copy on a text editor (eg Text Edit) and look for the line near the end:
and change it to
Save the file and drag the it from the desktop back into iCal. It will now repeat on the second last Thursday of each month.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 3, 2009 7:30 AM (in response to Christian Theussl)A quick follow up: yesterday I recognized that I could not access my calendars online (as a Web appliccation on MobileMe). I could see emails, contacts, but as soon as I clicked on the iCal icon I get the error message that "MobileMe is unable to load your calendar...". I followed advices found on [this thread|http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1674198&tstart=0] and spent some hours troubleshooting but without success (using all my calendars with the desktop application iCal worked without problems).
I started to delete events in the past and in the future. But only as I deleted my modified repeating event the online calendar on MobileMe was working again! Don't know if I did something wrong when I modified that event, or the web application for calendars can not handle this kind of modification?
