    I get this error message when running bjam:

    error: Unable to find file or target named
    error:     '/python//python_for_extensions'
    error: referred from project at
    error:     '.'

    and I don't even know where to start looking.. can someone give me any pointers? thanks

      I ran a couple searchs:

      rainmaker ~ # grep -r python_for_extensions /usr/
      /usr/share/boost-build/v2/tools/python.jam:    alias python_for_extensions
      /usr/share/boost-build/v2/tools/python.jam:        alias python_for_extensions : python ;
      /usr/share/boost-build/v2/tools/python.jam:    requirements += <use>/python//python_for_extensions ;
      /usr/share/boost-build/tools/python.jam:    alias python_for_extensions
      /usr/share/boost-build/tools/python.jam:    alias python_for_extensions
      /usr/share/boost-build/tools/python.jam:        alias python_for_extensions : python ;
      /usr/share/boost-build/tools/python.jam:    requirements += <use>/python//python_for_extensions ;

      sabarasa@rainmaker ~/mmo_platform/twisted/crypto/source $ grep -rv svn . | grep -v svn | grep -v '*.cpp' | grep python
      ./Jamroot:import python ;
      ./Jamroot:python-extension libCrypto : Crypto.cpp KeyNegotiation.cpp : <include>/usr/include/boost/ <include>/usr/include/python2.5/ <library-path>/usr/lib/ <find-shared-library>boost_python <find-shared-library>cryptopp ;

      rainmaker ~ # find / -name boost_python && echo '\n-------------\n' &&find / -name boost
      \n-------------\n
      /usr/include/boost
      /usr/portage/dev-libs/boost

      so it seems that boost_python doesn't exist, but then again, the same search on a machine where the same project builds does not find anything either.. please any tips will be useful
