At this moment building of boost-python with 64 bit tool chain fails at final link stage. Using 32 bit octave 4.1.0+ for windows build of boost_python was successful
. So far octave-4.1.0+ 32 bit has been used.
==== Build Pytave (Procedure and current state) ====
# Open octave-cli.exe
To sum up, Tatsuro has built 32 bit version of octave and used it to build libboost-python with the option ''link=static,shared'' and has successfully got the configure step done. But in the ''make'' step he is getting some undefined symbol errors for ''__imp__'' symbols.
=== Summary ===
=== Conclusion ===
To quote Tatsuro ''A lot of _imp__ symbols errors are detected because no _imp__(symbol)s exist in object files. While object files libboost_python for threading-multi have _imp__(symbol)s in their object files. Boost does not show full compiling states. Therefore I do not know what libboost is to do.''
I too have googled extensively but haven't gotten to any solution for this problem.
