The "-p" is placed in the name if you build with bjam and stlport, not from
the makefile.

Nope, last try: regex is "just a bunch of sources", they're located in
libs/regex/src. So you can either add those directly to your project, or
build them into a library from your IDE using the same build settings as the
rest of your project.
