In doing more research, I found how to fix this problem.
The offensive line is boost/tools/build/v1/intel-win32-tools.jam line 87.
I simply commented it out.

Another thing recommended is suppression of warning 167. It is emitted
520 times during the boost build. Always associated with use of
Appending "/Qwd167" to line 42 of intel-win32-tools.jam fixed this.

Now the only problem is the link stage of all dll builds appear to have
failed because the symbol __declspec(dllimport) is reported as an
undefined reference.

The interesting thing, to me at least, is this isn't a problem with the
intel-win32 build. This suggests there is a solution.

My hope is this isn't a show stopper because this mechanism has been
tossed so dlls work more like shared libraries on linux. At least this
compiler package comes with xilink, something described as a "dynamic

I humbly request guidance in resolving this problem.
