It looks like this is similar to
It doesn't look like anything was done about this,
and I don't think it would really solve your
problem anyway. Here's the thing: You've asked
to build with multiple toolsets and multiple
configurations. Because of the way the mpi
python extension is defined, only a single
configuration can be installed. However,
I don't think any single configuration is
correct in this case. The best idea I have
right now is

1) go to libs/mpi/build/Jamfile.v2 and add
    explicit mpi ;
    after the python-extension is declared.
2) Build everything else.
3) Figure out which variants of mpi.pyd you actually want to build.
4) Run bjam libs/mpi/build//mpi <other options>
    (You can leave out --stage-dir, it doesn't have any effect)
5) Find the binaries in build\libs\mpi\build\...\mpi.pyd and
    figure out where to put them
