Try 'port contents boost | grep regex-mt' to see if your boost
installation contains that file at all. Perhaps the problem is that it
was not installed properly, in which case you might want to reinstall
boost from macports.

Boost 1.36 has some API changes, I believe, so you don't want to
upgrade to it yet. It was introduced and then pulled out from Fedora
Linux's development tree, for example. If you *do* want to try it,
however, the way to do it would be to modify the Portfile that tells
MacPorts how to build Boost, so that it uses the new version instead.
See the documentation for details.

Hope that helps, and oh, by the way, you might want to bottom-quote
when posting. It's the convention, and makes it easier to follow the
