ICU_LINK doesn't work

Reported by: Andrey Semashev Owned by: John Maddock
Milestone: Boost 1.41.0 Component: regex
Version: Boost 1.40.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: icu Cc:


I'm trying to compile Boost.Regex with ICU 3.4 and MSVC 7.1. The ICU library in my case has a nonstandard directory layout like this:

   |   |
   |   |->layout
   |   |->unicode

So the library binaries are in icu/win32/lib instead of the standard icu/lib. I tried to use ICU_LINK environment variable, like bjam suggests (note, I use Cygwin to build the library):

export HAVE_ICU=1
export ICU_PATH="$PATH_TO_ICU/icu"
export ICU_LINK="/LIBPATH:$PATH_TO_ICU/icu/win32/lib icuuc.lib icuin.lib icudt.lib"

However, it seems this variable has no effect, the parameters in ICU_LINK are not seen in the linker command line.

What I eventually came up with was to explicitly specify $ICU_LINK in linkflags for bjam when building Boost.Regex.
