I don't know what you mean; I didn't touch the Boost config. All I
did was to edit intel-win32-tools.jam. Did you follow the link above?

If config_info is showing wrong answers, I can't help it, though I am
not at all sure ADL is enabled for this compiler. I didn't change
much about the command-line options that get used with Intel7 anyway.
If you want to try to add -Qoption,c,--no-microsoft-bugs when the
compiler is version 7, you could try to do that, but you'd better
test it atop each of the vc6, vc7, and vc7.1 standard libs to make
sure it's actually compatible.
