OK. Here is what I found out. Those configurations that failed to link all
have external symbol references in the format of __imp__Py... (Please note
the double underscores after __imp) while those succeeded have only one
underscore after __imp. Python24.lib only exports __imp_Py* and that
explains the link errors. Unfortunately, I know very little about bjam and
do not know what could have caused the differences.
