Thought so that this is the cause for the trouble. Thx for the hint.
Put the parameter in the bjam parameter (as you proposed later).
(I still haven't found out how those Jam files work)
See below...

Googling brought me to this approach... uhm...

I think so...

Tried adding in the BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB parameter as you proposed...

I made sure that python25.lib won't be used by renaming it to _python25.lib


toolset=msvc --verbose-test test python-debugging=on define=BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB

result in: (see last line)

c --verbose-test test python-debugging=on define=BOOST_ALL_NO_LIB
