Well, those projects haven't been maintained in a while and are most likely
out-of-date. The current recommended method is to use Boost.Jam with the
Jamfile in libs/python/build. That's how I build and test all the examples,
the comprehensive test, and libboostpython.dll.

If you need any help getting that to work, just let me know.
