Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Getting bjam to build with python in windows

I use boost 1.40.0 i suppose. It seems to invoke the --with-python by
default and I get an error message when using the --without-python
(both --with and --without error).

I need python, but I'm not sure if I need it to be built or just
connected to the boost-things. I was told that the python stuff that
came with the boost download did not work properly with the
eclipse/windows setup I have. So I had to build, or somehow get it
connected to my project.

Like I said it seems that bjam is looking in the right place but
choosing the wrong executable (pythonw.exe vs. python.exe). But I'm
new to this so I might be misunderstanding the feedback.
