Subject: [boost] Problems building boost.python against python 3.x on Windows

There seem to be a problem building boost.python against python 3.x on

Steps to reproduce:
* Download & unzip boost 1.55
* bootstrap.bat
* set PYTHONHOME=C:\Python33
* b2 link=shared runtime-link=shared toolset=msvc-11.0

b2 will then output the following:

warning: No python installation configured and autoconfiguration
note: failed.  See
This does not happen if building against Python 2.7 with set
PYTHONHOME=C:\Python27. I suspect that the reason is due to
tools\build\v2\engine\build.jam only containing logic for python 2.2-2.7.
Could anyone please look into this?
Thanks in advance,
