Do you have RTM (build 14.00.50727.42) version of vc8?

Indeed, the problem that none of boost DLLs were built was setup error,
fixed now. It did not apply to regression tests, anyway (it was only
problem with my manual build). However, debug build of python DLL was
still failing.

I verified that this error goes away if additional define
_CRT_NOFORCE_MANIFEST is passed to compiler. I tweaked vc-8_0-tools.jam
on my local computer to define this preprocessor symbol (just added line
"flags vc-8_0 C++FLAGS : -D_CRT_NOFORCE_MANIFEST ;"), however I have no
idea why there was an error in the first place and if this fix does not
break anything else. After this (local) fix the only problems building
boost I have are two compiler errors in boost_signals (see separate

Anyone knows what _CRT_NOFORCE_MANIFEST means and/or is wiling to apply
the fix to CVS?
