After the "cd modular-boost" step you have to apply the attached patch,
then run (or in your case, re-run) booststrap.bat

This patch is not supposed to affect use with an svn checkout, so it should
be applied to trunk. But with the Boost.Build folks MIA, we were holding
off applying it to trunk until 1.55 beta shipped.

Maybe we should go ahead and do that now, but I'd like to poll the release
managers first. I'll to that.

By the way, the machine running the conversion script ran out of disk space
a few days ago. Dave Abrahams is aware of the problem.

Incidentally, I've been running tests comparing modular-boost to svn trunk,
with excellent results. More on that later.
