The configure script cannot find boost::python, and cannot compile a
boost::graph example. In the latter case, the compiler complains of
missing symbols, which is very strange.

What boost version are you using? Did you compile with the same GCC you
are using for graph-tool? Did you enable boost::python and compile it
against anaconda's version?
