do you have MSDN subscription? If so, you may download it. You do not
need whole ~3GB, much smaller Visual C++ 2005 Express is enough (but you
will need to pull Platform SDK, though).

Apparently problem is wider and applies to other libraries as well. I
just tried building whole boost 1.31.1 RC by hand on MSVC8:
bjam.exe "-sTOOLS=vc-8_0" "-sBUILD=release debug <runtime-link>dynamic
<threading>multi <debug-symbols>off" stage

and no dll files were created. I checked bjam log, and found that linker
fails with message:
  error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol ___CxxFrameHandler3

It is possible that it's problem with my setup, or that toolset vc-8_0
is not compatible with Visual C++ 2005 Express. Now I'm trying to build
boost 1.31.1 RC again, this time with -d2 option.
