Subject: [Boost-build] Crosscompiling boost with Python 3.4.0 enabled

I am trying to cross compile boost turning on support for Python 3.4. The
build environment works w/o the python libraries (already since quite some
time). But now we added python to the embedded - PPC based - platform and I
need a way to integrate Python code in a C++ application...


Linux 3.20
Boost 1.55
Python 3.4

I have done quite some xcompile setups for other OSS packages, but I am
under a very tight schedule, and haven't had success turning it on.

The build machine is a Linux Mint 16 64bit, with Python 3.3.2 and Python
2.7 installed. By default the bjam session discovers Python 2.7. The
headers and home directory to the XCompiled python code is of cause not in
the /usr directory... If i can avoid it, i would like to NOT install the
Python 3.4 code native environment...

Any pointers for getting this to work?

Kind regards,
