Aha, synchonicity, I was just about to post a message about that. I think
I've tracked the problem down to a problem in the test program (some
defunct #if's whick I've now removed). I think that it should now be OK.
I don't have detailed instructions though, as I'm not a sun user - I
suggest you start trying to build and run
<boost>/libs/regex/demo/regress/regex_test.cpp (it builds as a single
file). If that's OK (let me know if it is!) then the library source is in
<boost/libs/regex/src/*.cpp, just build all those cpp files into a library.
Thanks for comming back to me on this.
