As I already mentioned:
Boost.Regex ICU library search has a bug -- it does not search
correctly debug/release versions when using MSVC compiler.
Also it too tighten to specific platforms/implementations.
So I ask if there is any standard way to do this, as today
lib z ;
But with fallback, with error reporting if not found, with options
to search where is the library.
I assume that ICU is not the only 3rd part library that Boost uses
so Boost.Build should have some generic find_library like functionality
I just can't find any documentation for it.
BTW: Is there anything like CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH/CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH of
CMake or autotools CXXFLAGS/LDFLAGS that allow to pass a path
to libraries -- but in generic way -- to all modules.
