IC2 recipe is dust based, handled by the IC2 recipe handler and with only Forestry and IC2 installed, still exists in the game. (i.e., it's not being replaced by Forestry)
Forestry has a config controlled recipe added to the standard Forge recipe handler. Thus, by your own personal complaint against Tinker's Construct, there is no reason to affect this recipe in the game. This is beside the point of "user preference" or anything similar.
