In short it depends on what you are trying to do (as ever). BTW I have
never got GRETA to compile with anything other than VC7, but maybe Eric can
jump in and correct me there...

Then don't use the dll! Static linking to boost.regex should add about 50K
to your app (in tests the minimal test program was 56K with VC7). If that's
still too much then I suggest that your expectations are unreasonable.
