What you may not realise is that Boost.IOStreams will generate warnings about
mizzing ZLib and BZip2 libraries. However, for these you need to say:

   bjam --v2 --debug-configuration

It would make sense to do the same for the Python and RegEx libraries. That
way, if you run into build/configuration problems, you will be warned about the
missing libraries and if you don't care (like Andy :)), then you won't see anything.
It will also make things cleaner.

That way, everyone is happy :).
