I'm posting my 'bin' directory online:
It contains binaries for vc7.1 and vc8.0. I have a very old 8.0 version,
so there could be problems on your machine.

It is time-consuming, but not that much -- for the purpose of the review.
What would indeed be time-consuming, is making the library header-only.
In addition to the posted bin.zip file,
to build the log lib, you could do either of:
- copy the library files into your BOOST_ROOT directory, or
- get started by using one of the examples provided by the library.
You could start with the 'basic_usage' example, or
- include the source files into your projects -
it's just 3 source files,
and define the macro 'BOOST_LOG_NO_LIB'
How does that sound?

Thanks, added that.
