Please could you give more details about which regexp library Boxi depends 
on that Box doesn't? Maybe I'm blind at the moment, but I can't find it.

In theory, I think Box and Boxi (at least the latest Boxi from CVS) use 
the same regexp library. In any case, you must be able to build Box under 
cygwin (with all its dependencies) to build Boxi.

What did you comment out to make it work for you?

Cheers, Chris.
