Reproducing the problem is quite easy.

1. svn checkout of the trunk, no modification what so ever...
2. call bjam with the following parameter:

d:\dev\libs\boost>"bin\bjam.exe" -d 0 stage --stagedir=. --toolset=msvc
link=static runtime-link=shared architecture=x86 release debug address-model

warning: Graph library does not contain optional GraphML reader.
note: to enable GraphML support, set EXPAT_INCLUDE and EXPAT_LIBPATH to the
note: directories containing the Expat headers and libraries, respectively.
warning: skipping optional Message Passing Interface (MPI) library.
note: to enable MPI support, add "using mpi ;" to user-config.jam.
note: to suppress this message, pass "--without-mpi" to bjam.
note: otherwise, you can safely ignore this message.
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(don't panic: this is a strictly optional feature).
error: Unable to find file or target named
error: '/python//python_for_extensions'
error: referred from project at
error: 'libs/python/build'

But when "libs/python/build/Jamfile.v2" is rolled back to r39191, I'm able to
build the library.

Thanks for you help.
