   The generated user-conf.jam is not found by bjam, resulting in:
        ===> Building for boost-python-1.34.1
        python: not found
        WARNING: No python installation configured and autoconfiguration
                 failed.  See
                 for configuration instructions or pass --without-python to
                 suppress this message and silently skip all Boost.Python 
        warning: Python location is not configured
        warning: the Boost.Python library won't be built
        ...found 1 target...
        => Unwrapping files-to-be-installed.

There is no error, but nothing is built, and the install fails.

        Build devel/boost-python. I'm not certain exactly what
        other factors need to be in place to reproduce the problem.
   According to <>,
bjam looks in $HOME and $BOOST_BUILD_PATH for user-config.jam. For
some reason setting HOME isn't sufficient in my case. (Possibly being
reset by the shell?) The following patch fixes the problem for me.
