This should be totally unrelated. niXman's bootstrap.bat invocations are trying to find VCVARS32.BAT for some reason. My changes merely emit backslashes for paths in build.jam. (The use of pathnt.c for mingw in and pathunix.c for not-mingw is unquestionably correct, and should also be completely disconnected from the bootstrap.bat machinery.)

It would be nice if niXman could sync to before checkin 86460 in order to exonerate it.
