Why on earth you do that rather than just cloning
git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/regression.git and using it directly?
If there are problems with git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/regression.git, it
is fine to fork it, fix the problems, then submit pull requests. But
there is no reason it needs to be part of the Boost super-project. I
guess we should have left a dummy boost-root/tools/regression
directory in the super-project to point people to the new location,
and provided explicit build instructions. I'll try to do that in the
next few days, but it won't happen for 1.58.0.
