It seems like the command line I was using earlier isn't working correctly.
For some reason boost_python-mt-gyd is linking against BOTH the release AND
debug versions of the python library. The only way around this is to modify
the user-config.bjam file, as below:

using python
       : 2.5
       : # cmd-or-prefix
       : c:\\rocket_support\\vc9\\include
       : c:\\rocket_support\\vc9\\lib
       : <python-debugging>on
