Boost :

First I posted basically this message to boost-user list on Monday
5/21 and have yet to receive any replies. If re-posting this message
to a different list is inappropriate please forgive me. I do have
some additional information. I installed boost 1.34.0 on a Window XP
machine using mcvs 8.0 and was again able to successfully build all
the boost libraries and received the same errors as on my Mac when I
tried to build the boost python example.

I was able to discover a rule called python-extension in the file

rule python-extension ( name : sources * : requirements * : default-
build * :
                                           usage-requirements * )

IMPORT python : python-extension : : python-extension ;

I am on a Mac with OS X 10.4 and trying to compile the boost/Python
examples in tutorial or quickstart using Bjam v3.1.14 OS=MACOSX. I
issue the following command in the boost_1_34_0/libs/python/libs/
example directory

bjam --toolset=darwin test

I receive the following errors:

Jamroot:18: in modules.load
rule python-extension unknown in module Jamfile</Users/arthurcoleman/
project.jam:312: in load-jamfile
project.jam:68: in load
project.jam:170: in project.find
system.jam:237: in load
tools/build/v2/kernel/modules.jam:261: in import
tools/build/v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:132: in boost-build
build.jam:7: in module scope

Can someone help me since I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
By the way, I have tried as a superuser and get the same errors. It
seemed that I was able to successfully install boost from the
boost.../build director with the ./configure --toolset=darwin --show-
libraries ect.

Thanks in advance,
