Summary: Boost.Build v2 build script help for evc4

Initial Comment:
I'm currently porting various Boost libraries to evc4
and threw together a hacked version of the
msvc-tools.jam file that is using version 1. For the
next release I need help in creating a build script for
the version 2 of Boost.Build. I attached a somewhat
working version of my "evc4-stlport-tools.jam" file.

I don't know if I did everything alright. The
differences from evc4 to vc6 is:
- there is no /M switch specifying the runtime. It
always is "shared C runtime".
- for exe files, the parameter /entry:mainACRTStartup
must be specified for linking (this currently doesn't
- for the ARM architecture the following defines are
on: ARM, _ARM_, ARMV4
- The _STLP_DEBUG mode mustn't be defined, since the
ARM compiler has a compiler bug that prevents from
working code
- It's best to always specify /Zm800, since the
compiler is quickly getting out of memory errors.

Can anyone help in creating a toolset file for this
compiler? Thanks!
