I'm sorry, I should never have approved this posting for the
boost-announce list.

Appropriate lists for these question should be evident by reading

I suggest the C++-sig for Boost.Python and the Jamboost list for
Boost.Build. Please take any further correspondence to one of those
two lists.

Yes; the current CVS even uses a static Boost.Python library build for its
embedding test. See libs/python/test/Jamfile.

You haven't told us what your platform is, so I can't say whether we
have a prebuilt executable for you. describes where they can be downloaded.
