The boost with WITH_PYTHON=yes and boost-python are exactly same. The  
boost-python call on boost with WITH_PYTHON=yes define. Read in  
devel/boost-python/Makefile. I doubt this crash issue has to do with boost  
vs boost-python. When I created different miro port, all FreeBSD 6.x users  
report me crash issue while FreeBSD 7.x and above users don't have any  
problem. I can't figure what's wrong with miro in FreeBSD 6.x as all of my  
machines have FreeBSD 7.x.

For other ports that need boost with python stuff can depend on  
boost-python, but the current method of slave port in boost-python isn't  
right. It needs to be fix.
