I was getting similar errors to those reported by the OP. Adding the
"import python ;" line reduced the errors, but still produced:

>bjam toolset=msvc --verbose-test test
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(don't panic: this is a strictly optional feature).
notice: could not find main target test
notice: assuming it's a name of file to create
don't know how to make <e>test
...found 1 target...
...can't find 1 target...

This is on Windows XP with VC++ 8.0 SP1.

Out of idle curiosity I then ran with:

    bjam toolset=msvc --verbose-test

Everything seemed to work fine and both tests reported **passed**

I was a little surprised that neither test_embed nor test_ext produced
.dll's. Does that mean it is OK to static link?
