The build+install options only work if you are at boost-root/. If you
only want to build one of the libraries you can use the --with-*
options, for example --with-regex.

--- I just re-read the above, you are using 1.31 which doesn't have the
--with-* options only the --without-* options. SO you'd have to specify
--without-* options for all libs except regex to build only regex.
