No joy:

#<example jamfile>
extension query_py
: # sources
   # requirements and dependencies for Boost.Python extensions
#</example jamfile>

With the invocation

c:\boost\libs\python\example>bjam -sTOOLS=VC7.1

I get
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file

If I copy
c:\boost\libs\python\example\ , and change it to
libboost_regex-vc71-mt-gd-1_31.lib, query_py.pyd compiles just fine, and
works when invoked from Python, too!
Would I had the skill to figure out the disconnect. Perhaps someday. ;)
