There are two libraries using ICU - regex and locale they look for the library in quite different manner as for Boost.Locale ICU is central and important part. If you want to build Boost.Locale with specific library location you should provide    ./b2 -sICU_PATH=/path/to/icu/root See: I don't really know your specific setup and installation options but the two last lines relate to Boost.Locale's ICU location and the first one Boost.Regex's Try to use this option and see if there any problems.
