Subject: [boost] Boost with ICU on AIX - Patch

Hi there,

while trying to get Boost 1.34.1 to work on an AIX machine, I
found a bug that still persists in 1.38.0. You might want to fix

In boost/regex/icu.hpp:

< typedef std::vector<UCHAR32> vector_type;

>    typedef std::vector<UChar32> vector_type;
<       v.push_back((UCHAR32)(*i));
<       ++a;
>       v.push_back((UChar32)(*i));
>       ++i;
It should be obvious once you look at the source environment -
the UCHAR32 is probably a typo, and the ++a is copy-and-paste
work. This has obviously never been test-compiled on a real
machine. Surprising that this has not been caught earlier (since
it's been in there since 1.33)...
Anyway, with that patch (and a backport of another one on
vacpp.jam that's been included in later versions of Boost), v1.34.1
compiles cleanly with ICU-support on AIX.
