not sure if there's a bit of confusion there between the headers and the 
libraries. Was your boost installation built with python support? Looks 
like you have it from macports so you can check like this:

    $ port installed boost
    The following ports are currently installed:
       boost @1.46.1_0+no_single+no_static+python26+universal (active)

you're looking for a +python26 or +python27 I guess. The configure is 
looking for the libboost_python-mt.dylib which macports puts in 
/opt/local/lib :

    $ port contents boost | grep python | grep dylib

The graph-tool configure should find everything you need if you point it 
at the boost root directory "./configure --with-boost[=DIR]" - which in 
this case would be

    ./configure --with-boost=/opt/local

there should be no need to add flags yourself after this- but if you 
did, they would be CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" for the header files 
and LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib" for the libraries.

If you are using macports, then why not use the portfile for graph-tool 
(which works very nicely and takes care of all these things)? It is 
recommended to use the same compiler for boost, python and graph-tool- 
macports provides all of them (just set aside a few hours for compilation!).
