Then where did you get ICU_PATH from? It's not mentioned in the
getting-started guide, and the message emitted by bjam if you build without
ICU support (ie by following the getting started guide) is:

warning: Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support
note: Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
note: this is a strictly optional feature.

Then this clearly directs you to the regex lib docs. But if we can do
better.... ???
