We are using 4.3.2beta and our own local toolsets. See (patch to como-win32-tools.jam) and
// extension toolset
You will have to apply como-win32-tools.jam.diff patch to file
in your tools/build directory and just copy meta-como-4.3.2b-vc7-tools.jam
to tools/build.

Invoking bjam -sTOOLS=meta-como-4.3.2b-vc7 should give you what you want.

4.3.3b8 has a bug in como.exe which prevents it from successfully building
most of
the boost. I am working with Boost.Build people and Greg Comeau on that,
and I think it is going to be resolved Very Soon Now.
