We can just do the following:

To build all with VC++7.1:

build-bjam.bat <- to be created and placed at root
bjam "-sTOOLS=vc-7_1" install

Specifying correct vcvars isn't nesessary any more. I remember I had
this problem with 1.31, but 1.33 calls correct vcvars itself.

As I suggested in another thread, we can also create files like
vc-2003-default-build.bat. This will eliminate nasty typing at all. Also
I know a lot of people which always choose "full install", so these ones
will be completely happy.
