#13560: Cannot build --with-python --with-mpi --python-buildid=py36 python=3.6

 For a long time, debian would do multiple build configs of boost.
 First, build boost without python.
 Then build boost for each supported python version, including mpi/mpi-

 However, this does not appear to quite work. Previously boost_python
 introduced boost_python2 and boost_python3 libraries pointing at the
 default versions of respective major series. But in master/1.66/1.67 these
 appear to be gone.

 However, mpi Jamfile still refers to boost_python3 library which no longer

 Either it is a bug in boost_python that it has dropped boost_python2 and
 boost_python3 aliases.
 Or it is a bug in mpi Jamfiles and it should stop using boost_python2 and
 boost_python3 aliases and simply compile against "boost_python" and use a
 matching buildid.

 I've proposed a patch to make mpi build against 'boost_python' without
 iterating for 2 3 major versions here


 Components are mpi&python
