#3425: ICU_LINK doesn't work
 Reporter: andysem | Owner: johnmaddock
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.41.0 | Component: regex
  Version: Boost 1.40.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: icu |
 I'm trying to compile Boost.Regex with ICU 3.4 and MSVC 7.1. The ICU
 library in my case has a nonstandard directory layout like this:

    | |
    | |->layout
    | |->unicode

 So the library binaries are in icu/win32/lib instead of the standard
 icu/lib. I tried to use ICU_LINK environment variable, like bjam suggests
 (note, I use Cygwin to build the library):

 export HAVE_ICU=1
 export ICU_PATH="$PATH_TO_ICU/icu"
 export ICU_LINK="/LIBPATH:$PATH_TO_ICU/icu/win32/lib icuuc.lib icuin.lib

 However, it seems this variable has no effect, the parameters in ICU_LINK
 are not seen in the linker command line.

 What I eventually came up with was to explicitly specify $ICU_LINK in
 linkflags for bjam when building Boost.Regex.
