Thanks Reece.

Now I configured both:

# GCC configuration
# Configure gcc (default version)
using gcc ;
# Configure specific gcc version, giving alternative name to use
# using gcc : 3.2 : g++-3.2 ;
# MSVC configuration
# Configure msvc (default version, searched in standard location
# and PATH).
using msvc : 7.1 ;

But, even if I want to use msvc, it seems to go with gcc anyway:

C:\ark\boost-cvs\boost\libs\typeof\test>bjam --v2 -a -s"TOOLS=msvc"
warning: Python location is not configured
warning: the Boost.Python library won't be built
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
...found 495 targets...
...updating 87 targets...

Also how would I configure different versions of Visual C++ ?
