After successfully building boost from scratch using VC7 on WINXP, I
tried to repeat it using a WINNT box at home. Unfortunately cmd.exe
appears to work differently on WINNT.

Build.bat uses SETLOCAL to return errorlevel to zero. This works on
WINXP, but not NT. I found that it was necessary to use:

setlocal ENABLEEXTENSIONS & endlocal

to get the errorlevel to reset back to zero. I suspose WINNT is
pretty obsolete by now and it doesn't really matter. Maybe a windows
script file might work better?
