Ah! The penny drops...

The debian boost packages are build using stlport, so you need
to compile using

  g++ -I/usr/include/stlport -lboost_regexp -lstlport

I built "Tha Project"'s test program this way, and it links
okay. It doesn't run, though ... it seems that something in
stlport is throwing an exception at the following line

     regex expression("(\\S\\S){[Ayw]}(\\S)/");

Let me know if this solves your problems.
