Please read the new getting started guide. you're using options
(-sBUILD=...) that are no longer supported. Your build command should
be something like:

   bjam --toolset=msvc -prefix=.\install\basic debug release runtime-link=dynamic threading=multi

of course, from the top level, both debug and release are built by
default, so

   bjam --toolset=msvc -prefix=.\install\basic runtime-link=dynamic threading=multi

should be sufficient.

Hmm, this looks like a problem for our release manager.
