You are using the BoostBuild V1 way of specifying toolsets. For V2, use the

   bjam --v2 -a msvc


   bjam --v2 -a msvc-7.1

if you want to specify the version. V2 will use the first toolset initialized (gcc
in this case) if no toolset is passed to bjam, which is why you were getting
the gcc build.

   using msvc : 7.1 ;
   using msvc : 8.0 ;

or if you want to auto-detect them:

   using msvc : all ;

The BBv2 documentation at should
help you out with further queries.
