Don't do that.

Do this instead:
: [ run regress.cpp ]

run ( sources + : args * : input-files * : requirements * : name ? : default-build * )
[ run regress.cpp : : : <sysinclude>$(BOOST_ROOT) ]
would work. But I don't know why you want to add it, since it gets
added automatically by all the testing rules ;-).
