boost.mpi and boost.graph both build Python extension modules, but neither
have good build system support right now. I care most about the boost.mpi
issue, so I'll focus on that one.
mpi.so, the Python extension module for boost.mpi gets built correctly, but it
gets installed in the wrong location, namely $prefix/lib. I assume that is
because it internally simply is a shared library. It really should be in
$prefix/lib/pythonN.N/site-packages/boost/, with directories along that path
created if necessary. Also, there's a file __init__.py under libs/mpi/build
that needs to go under that same path.
How do I make that happen? I just spent more time than I care to admit trying
to figure this out, to no avail.
