Comment(by christina.larocca@…):

 I'll respond to myself to expose another problem.

 As I sais before, I need libs with a SONAME with the format:, while it's name should be There's anothe problem, because I've two
 versions of regex, one with ICU and another without it. The version with
 ICU need to have a SONAME like be called, while
 the version built without ICU should be called

 my problem is to compile regex with ICU, giving it a SONAME like, while the rest of the Boost libs keep the 1.39.0 suffix.

 Any help about it?

 I need, but I can't find something clear.
