Yes. To clarify, you've originally mentioned:

        --toolset=msvc msvc/architecture=x86/address-model=64

and "--toolset=msvc" is exactly same as "toolset=msvc", so the above is:

        toolset=msvc toolset=msvc/architecture=x86/address-model=64

and it's requesting two build everything twice -- in 32-bit mode, and
64-bit mode, and given that library filenames are the same, naturally things
don't really work well.

This is yet another example how "--toolset" confuses everybody.
