Hi all,

I'm trying to build boost.python with a custom python 3.5 installation in a custom directory.  So far, I've been using the following sequence of commands and have not gotten a successful build.  Are there any other things I have to tell boost in order for it to find all it needs properly?  I get errors along the lines of "cannot find Python.h", even though I think I'm telling boost where to find the python headers.  

python_root=`python3.5 -c "import sys; print(sys.prefix)”`

./bootstrap.sh --with-python-root=$python_root --prefix=/mnt/data/kpalunas/boost/boost_1_58_0 --with-python=/mnt/data/kpalunas/python3.5/bin/python3.5 –with-libraries=python,regex,thread,serialization --with-python-version=3.5

(I add the following line to project-config.jam after running bootstrap.sh)

using python : 3.5 : /mnt/data/kpalunas/python3.5/bin/python3.5m : /mnt/data/kpalunas/python3.5/include : /mnt/data/kpalunas/python3.5/lib ;

./b2 install
