I'm no expert on .bat or Rene's intentions, but I guess that the
problem is here:

if "_%_known_%_" == "__" (
call :Error_Print "Unknown toolset: %BOOST_JAM_TOOLSET%"
if errorlevel 1 goto Finish

Since the first test fails, I wouldn't be surprised if we had
errorlevel 1 afterwards. It seems to me that we should just comment
out line 256 (the last one above). Markus, if you do that, does
everything work?
