Problems with Boost.Python

I'm trying to get Boost.Python to working using the instructions here: http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/building.html. I am on step 3.1.4 and am getting a linking error that I can't figure out. This is the error:

  2. Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
  3. Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
  4. (don't panic: this is a strictly optional feature).

I using Ubuntu 7.04 and Python 2.5. I've tried configuring the .jam file, but it didn't seem to help. Any help would be appreciated--I'm stuck here, and I'm a bit hazy on compilers/linkers to begin with (I haven't taken the compiler class in school yet). Thanks.
