Boost-Build :

I compiled bjam from the boost_1_33_0 source, copied user-config.jam to
the $BOOST_BUILD_PATH and made the following modification:

<user-config.jam mod>
# Configure gcc (default version)
using gcc : 3.4 : gcc-3.4 ;
using gcc : 3.3arm :
tfloat-linux-gnu-c++ : \
<cxxflags>-pthread \
</user-config.jam mod>

Invoking bjam from $BOOST_BUILD_PATH with:
# bjam --v2 gcc-3.3arm
yielded the following error message.

Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).

Unless I've made a typo somewhere, this worked for boost_1_32_0 last
May. Are there new instructions somewhere for setting up and invoking a

BTW: IMHO the Python warnings are a very nice improvement over the
previous message.
