Do you really want the python library to be built (you're not using
"--with-python"), or are you simply concerned over the warnings?

If the former, add "--with-python" to your bjam invocation and read up

If the latter, ignore the warnings. IIRC similar warnings (regarding
libraries not actually being built in the current build request) should have
been fixed in later Boost versions - which version of Boost are you using?
