Aha. I'm pretty sure this is due to the hack I just added to the
regex lib to get it to leave off the "lib"... prefixes when building
on windows platforms.

I'll have to go in and hack the Boost.Build core to get this to work

I wonder if, perhaps, I can just patch the stage rule to change the
name accordingly and avoid some of the nastiness involved with
intra-project dependencies like this one. Nobody cares about the
exact name of the library that gets built for running the regression
tests, do they, John?
