I am afraid I cannot comment on Makefiles. These are provided as convenience,
and not supported. If you want to get yourself a release build of boost.regex,
you should run the following commands in the root of Boost source tree:

    .\bjam.exe variant=release --with-regex

and the libraries will be then found in 'stage\lib' directory.

Hope this helps,
