Boost.Build is a prerequisite just as any other, and I have no
(immediate) plans to change that. So as long as Boost.Build is available
on the computer, users should be able to build Boost.Python with it.
(And I certainly don't want to bundle Boost.Build with Boost.Python. In
fact, I believe Boost.Build would be the obvious first choice to
decouple fully from the rest of Boost, and release separately, but
that's not my call to make.)
