A default 'bjam' worked okay, but I ran into the problem when I tried to build universal and target 10.5 like this:

  bjam architecture=combined address-model=32_64 macosx-version=10.5 link=shared --toolset=darwin --with-python

I got it working by adding macosx-version-min=10.5 and by editing my user-config.jam to force the python version to 2.5:

  bjam architecture=combined address-model=32_64 macosx-version=10.5 macosx-version-min=10.5 link=shared --toolset=darwin --with-python


  using python : 2.5 ;
