First issue:In building the libraries I had a couple of problems:

In building the boost_1_30_0 I had to make the following change in the jam file in order for the build to work.
I believe previously I addressed this by specifying more information in the bjam command line.

#file vc7-tools.jam

extends-toolset msvc ;

# singleton variables...
set-as-singleton VC7_ROOT ;

if ! $(MSVCDir)
    VC7_ROOT ?= "C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Visual Studio.NET\\VC7" ;
#____remove space here___________________________________/

    VC_TOOL_PATH = "$(VC7_ROOT)"\\bin\\ ;
    VC_SETUP = "CALL \"$(VC_TOOL_PATH)VCVARS32.BAT\" >nul" ;
VC_PDB_NAME = vc70 ;

flags vc7 CFLAGS : /Op ;
flags vc7 C++FLAGS : /Zc:wchar_t,forScope ;

# The following #// line will be used by the regression test table generation
# program as the column heading for HTML tables. Must not include version number.

Second issue:I added a new library to my local copy of boost-dev directory tree. In trying to build I found
the the filesystem, optional and spirit libraries aren't included in the boost-dev tree while they are included in
boost_1_30_0 tree. As my library used spirit, it wouldn't build. Is this an oversight or is it simply that the development versions of these libraries live in a different place.
