** I apologize if this email has already been received, but I sent it
several days ago and never received a copy of it from the list. **

I've downloaded boost 1.33.1, installed it, then I downloaded the latest
bjam (as of today) and installed it. I'm running on Windows XP using MS
Visual Studio 2003.

If I navigate to the root boost library and type bjam, everything compiles
fine. But when I want to enable zlib support for the IO streams library, it
fails on a unknown dependent target. Below is what I see in my command

bjam "-sNO_COMPRESSION=0" "-sNO_ZLIB=0" "-sZLIB_SOURCE=C:\Dev\zlib"

Building Boost.Iostreams with bzip2 support disabled.

skipping Boost.Python library build due to missing or incorrect

couldn't find Python.h in "c:/Python24/include"

You can configure the location of your python installation by setting:
PYTHON_VERSION - The 2-part python Major.Minor version number (e.g.
                 "2.2", NOT "2.2.1") - currently "2.4"

PYTHON_ROOT - automatically configured from PYTHON_VERSION if not
                 otherwise set ; currently "c:/Python24"

The following are automatically configured from PYTHON_ROOT if not
otherwise set:

    PYTHON_LIB_PATH - path to Python library object; currently
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
unknown dependent target <@boost!libs!iostreams!build>libboost_zlib.lib

C:\Dev\Zlib is the location of the latest zlib source code (v1.2.3).

Can someone please explain to me how I can fix this problem?
