Boost :

I'm trying to build boost::python on my windows box, but I encounter
some problems in the build process. First, some info about my versions :

* I'm using the draft tarballs of the long expected version 1.32 that
can be found on

* I have a pyton 2.4 installed on my computer

I'm using bjam --v2 to build boost.

First problem I had was that the doc specified to set the PYTHON_ROOT
variable to my python installation path, but it looks like the script
look for a PYTHON_PATH variable. Either the scripts of the documentation
should be corrected.

Second problem, even if the doc claims that the variable PYTHON_VERSION
can be set to any version at least 2.2, in tha script, I can see what
looks to me (I'm totally new to bjam) like an hard-coded value :
> # Declare a target for the python interpreter library
> lib python : : <name>python22 <search>$(PYTHON_PATH)/libs ;
> PYTHON_LIB = python ;

Best regards,
