Subject: [Boost-build] Building boost + python on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

I’m having a hellish time trying to build the python bindings for boost in Mac
OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). I’m using boost_1_42_0, which seems to build okay
(except for hanging on test), and I’ve downloaded bgl-python-0.9 (the boost
python bindings), but the build instructions seem to be old and don’t reflect
the contents of bgl-python-0.9.

I’ve been banging my head against the wall trying to get this library up and
running. I really need a system that can help me calculate betweenness
centrality on a dataset I have.

Has anyone successfully installed boost with its python bindings on Snow Leopard?

Are there any other network graph libraries out there for python (or Java) that
can calculate betweenness well?
