The above is wrong for several reasons. First CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS are
invalid. They must be compiler/linker flags, not just directories. This
means that they should be CPPFLAGS="-I/Users/zhangxuejin/anaconda/include"
and LDFLAGS="-L/Users/zhangxuejin/anaconda/lib". Furthermore,
"-with-boost-python=-mt.a" does not make any sense, as this would point to
statically shared object.

Please take a careful look at the documentation:


Compiling graph-tool (or any other C++ library) without understanding how
compiling and linking works in general is not advisable. Instead you should
use macports or homebrew, if using MacOS.
