Comment (by anonymous):

 Too bad this was closed without at least detecting the absense of python
 during the compilation phase.

 Compiling on an old laptop I expected it to take awhile..... by the 2nd
 day and bjam target #1200 I realized it was looping.

 Apparently a few subtle "python not found" errors at the BEGINNING of the
 output was all I had to go on.

 My god simply check for python and if it's not there abort or display some
 kind of error message! My machine just sat at 100% CPU for 2 days wasting
 all kinds of energy for no reason at all.
