On Ubuntu 11.10 amd64 with g++ (and gcc) 4.6.1, I built ICU 4.8.1 with almost all default options except for specifying a non-default installation dir. Then I created the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable and set it to the lib dir of that new ICU installation *but did not* also create an ICU_PATH environment variable. Then I ran the boost script with a '--with-icu=/home/martin/app/icu/installation' parameter. The output of the b2 contained (among other things) the following bits about ICU:
     - has_icu builds : yes
    - icu : no
    - icu (lib64) : no

Which led me to expect that the boost regex libs would end up referencing the Ubuntu default ICU libs (which was not what I wanted to do). But they didn't, instead they *did* correctly reference the newly built ICU libraries (or at least that's how I'm interpreting the output of ldd against ). Which is nice, but doesn't that also mean that the docs in Boost regex about the ICU_PATH environment variable might need some revision? Or did I just luck out somehow?
