Yep, that worked for me as well. But I'm trying to get Boost.Asio's
SSL examples to build for me using MSVC, and of course I shouldn't
have to modify its Jamfile:

My assumption during this whole process is that with a correctly
configured MSVC/Boost.Build environment, I can get the Asio SSL
examples to compile simply by issuing "b2" from the corresponding
directory. I am starting to believe this assumption is false.

Yes I am believing that as well!

This is producing results! I am making forward progress now. But I'm
still left wondering how anyone is supposed to build the Asio SSL
example on Windows (without having to add a bunch of paths to the b2
invocation every time).
