In order to use the extended capture information then you must define

*both when building your application, and when building the regex lib*

If you're linking against the standard bjam built lib's then this won't
work: the lib's won't be binary compatible with the BOOST_REGEX_MATCH_EXTRA
option. Yes I no this is a pain, but it's a feature that has costs, so I
don't want to enable it by default.
