I would assume 'make install' would install a ${prefix}/include/regex.h
and ${prefix}/lib/libregex.a under the $prefix you selected (or
the package default, likely /usr/local).

You must then rerun configure with appropriate CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS.
For /usr/local searching:

	rm config.cache
	env CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib" \

(removing the configuration cache is required in this case)

Any POSIX regex library will do.  Henry Spencer's POSIX regex
works well.  (don't have a URL handy, sorry).  I believe
GNU regex and/or GNU rx should also work, but don't have much
experience with them.
