Subject: [Boost-build] [MPI]How can I compile the python module?

Hi, everyone.

I'm a newbie to the boost, and I'm trying to building the boost-mpi
lib and its python binding.
Here is my develop environment:
-Ubuntu 8.10
-g++ 4.3.2
-MPICH 1.27

I downloaded the source package of 1.37.0 and follow the "official"
instruction on
that is

$bjam --with-mpi
$bjam --with-mpi install --prefix="my home directory"

then I get all the header files and lib files of boost-mpi with no
problem in my home
directory, but I can't find the python binding module there.

After that, I read the "offical" instruction again and found the
python binding is based on
boost-python, so I tried

$bjam --with-mpi --with-python
$bjam --with-mpi --with-python install --prefix="my home directory"

then I get the header and lib files of boost-mpi and boost-python,
still I don't get the python binding module for
the boost-mpi.

Am I missing something? Thanks in advance for your help.
