First of all, I'd suggest you use the current version of Boost.Build V2, which
can be found at the "nightly build" link at, or
in the CVS.

With that in place, run bjam with the extra --debug-configuration option. You
should see something like:

   notice: Python include path is <path>

Make sure that the patch in question has the Python header files that are
reported as missing ('pyconfig.h', for example).

If the path above contains the right headers, make sure that the command line
includes the right -I option. When bjam fails to compiler a file it will
print the failed command, so you can look at it.

If the path above does not contain the right headers, look around to see where
they are in reality, and tell me what path is used by Boost.Build, and what
path should be used.
