I've just tried that, and it worked fine AFAICS.
One slight nit. build.bat used vc10, but I really wanted to test with
vc9 (express). So I had to manually edit booststrap.bat to pass vc9 to
build.bat. Thus it would have been slightly easier if the call to
build.bat had been:
call .\build.bat %1 > ..\..\..\bjam.log
