That's not what I'm seeing. It looks like you are in
c:\boost\libs\python\build and the compiler can't find
boost/python/detail/call_object.hpp. I don't see BOOST_ROOT in your #include
path as it should be. Thus the only possible search would be:


Ah, I see a problem: toolset names are case-sensitive. I realize this is a
weakness; windows users tend to assume that nothing is case-sensitive.
Please be sure you use -sTOOLS=msvc (lower-case). If that doesn't work,
please add -d+5 to your command-line, redirect the results into a file,
compress the file and send it to me personally (not the list). I'll look
into the problem.
