I am compiling boost.python libraries by following the procedure given at
I first configure the build and installation using bootstrap.sh script
$ ./bootstrap.sh --with-python=/usr/bin/python2.5 --with-libraries=python
Here are the contents of project-config.jam fie as generated by the script.

The output of bootstrap.sh script instructs me to run ./bjam to build while
instructions at the above link say to run ./bjam install
Anyways, I tried both the options but every time I get the same error
> Class top-level-target already defined
I searched the forums, but this error seems to never be discussed. I am
stuck, please help!
