I agree, and I put the message there!

The problem is that for some reason Boost.Build seems to want to include the
Jamfiles of all the libraries with separate source, regardless of whether
they're being used or not. The same warning (and basivcally the same code
to generate it) was present in BBv1, but that didn't try and parse that
Jamfile with every build!

Vladimir: is there a better way to deal with this so the warning is only
emitted when regex is actually being built?
