Confirmed, anything that scans the regex Jamfile fails :-(

I'm sure I tested this on the release branch previously, and I can't for the
life of me see what the issue is, it builds on Trunk OK as well. In fact
strangely the ICU configuration check which makes use of the offending code
runs OK, it's only the subsequent use that fails. I could just remove that
section of code I guess, but I'd really like to understand what's going on
here. We also need to fix that thread lib Jamfile dump. Vladimir?
