Okay, I looked into this. I fixed part of the problem:
PYTHON_VERSION_NODOT (see tools/build/v2/tools/python.jam) was not
even being computed. Now I've added a computation, but that doesn't
seem to fix anything for me. Despite the fact that
<find-library>python24 gets added to the requirements for the "python"
target, the library doesn't end up in the command line or the .rsp file.

Many little build system issues like this now seem to be holding up
the release. At least, that's been my experience when I look at
