Subject: [boost] [regex][patch] regex build not honoring ICU_LINK build property
From: Martin Schafföner (martin.schaffoener_at_[hidden])

I have been trying to build boost.regex with Unicode support against a custom ICU4C build. The ICU4C build used the "--with-library-suffix=rm" configuration option to distinguish the library as being custom built.

I tried building boost.regex with the bjam option like '-sICU_LINK="\"/LIBPATH:c:\icu4c\dist\libs\windows-i686 icuinrm.lib icuucrm.lib\""' but it failed to apply the linker flags. I then tried to understand what's going on and it seemed that the ICU_LINK property never makes it into the actual linker calls.

With the attached patch against 1.41.0 the ICU_LINK build property works as expected.
