Subject: [Boost-users] Python 3.2 (wide-unicode) with Boost 1.46.1 on Ubuntu 10.04 64bit LTS

  I have a local build of Python 3.2 which have have used to build
Python extensions and loaded them successfully in Blender 2.5 (which
uses Python 3.2)

  I am hoping to migrate my bindings to using Boost.Python.

  I have been been getting error messages from and bjam

  NOTE : I have no problem building boost with Python 2.6.5 which
comes with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

        ./ --prefix=/opt/boost/vTrunk-Python-3.2
--without-icu --with-python=/opt/python/v3.2/bin/python3.2

  My local build of python is deployed as per the configure script
>>>>>>>>|-- bin
>>>>>>>>|-- include
>>>>>>>>| `-- python3.2mu
>>>>>>>>|-- lib
>>>>>>>>| |-- pkgconfig
>>>>>>>>| `-- python3.2
>>>>>>>>`-- share
>>>>>>>> `-- man

  The boost build problem might be directory path naming convention related.

  If anyone knows the correct to build Boost or Python so they play
nice together, please share.
