The "error: link=shared together with runtime-link=static is not
allowed" problem is the newest problem I have, appeared in recent
versions, prevents us from doing a complete build. The ICU renaming
thing, well, <quick google search>, Ooo, looky, the 2nd result (1st is
the Boost.Regex docs) is one of my old (well, the most recent one)
posts on this exact subject on the boost-users mailing list. :)
I have made much older posts as well, but google cannot find them it
seems... But yea, ICU version 3 (and they are *well* past that now,
version 3 is really old now) changed the naming convention of their
shared libraries, thus Boost does not link with it without renaming
things. Check that post for what they were.
