I agree with John that it looks like /Zc:wchar_t isn't being passed to the
compiler. Yet the toolset clearly does so.

To debug, run bjam with the -d2 option and look at the options being passed
to the compiler. If /Zc:wchar_t is missing, then there is something wrong
with your tools/build/intel-win32-tools.jam file.

The other possibility is that Intel changed something in their 7.1 update.
I'm planning to install that update in a day or two; we'll see if it breaks
the Win32 regression tests.
