Hey folks,
We needed just boot regex, and a co-worker came up with the following
solution. YMMV,and this is posted just for reference. But for the 1
other cat out there who might need it someday, here's making your life

To compile just boost.regex for OSX 10.5 cross-platform:

1) Download boost_1_39_0.tar.bz2
2) unzip boost_1_39_0.tar.bz2
3) cd into boost_1_39_0
4) run './'
5) run './bjam toolset=darwin link=static threading=multi
architecture=combined address-model=32 macosx-version=10.5
macosx-version-min=10.5 --with-regex'

This will give you only and exactly the right link library (.a file) you
