David and Phillip -

I obviously made a blunder and didn't use: bjam "-sTOOLS=darwin".

One thing I noticed was compiling the hello world for debug works using:

That threw me off, when I did a: bjam release

Is there a requirement to have python installed when building boost proper?
I noticed 6 targets failed related to the unit testing and wondered if they
were related to python.

Best regards,
