I'm not quite clear on your procedure. Adding python=2.7 to command line(having
modified user-config.jam as described):

bjam -d+2 -j8 cxxflags='-march=native -Wno-unused-local-typedefs' -sHAVE_ICU=1 -
sEXPAT_INCLUDE=/usr -sEXPAT_LIBPATH=/usr/lib64 --layout=tagged
threading=single,multi link=shared stage python=2.7
