The "Python 2.2 or higher is required for this version of
Boost.Python" message is somewhat confusing since Python 2.6.2 is in
fact installed.

It would be clearer if it said "Python 2.2 or higher headers are
required for this version of Boost.Python; have you installed the
Python development system?"

Once the development package was installed the quickstart tests
passed, so that's probably what was causing the regressions to fail,
