When you use -sTOOLS=darwin, Boost.Jam always links against
Python.framework, regardless of which PYTHON_ROOT and kin are selected.
IIRC, specifying -sTOOLS=gcc works fine when you want to link against
Fink's Python, but I don't have a Mac to test with right now. I think
that there is a older Boost package in Fink, possibly in unstable. So
you might see how they build their Boost package.
