Well, aren't i ALL SMILES *smiles*. Oddly enough, following the
VC7.1 help and using Tools>Options>Projects>VC++Directories>Include
Files>New Line and entering "C:\boost" on that line, to augment
the "Path to use when searching for include files while building a
VC++ project. Corresponds to environment variable INCLUDE," doesn't
seem to get bind.hpp found. What works (for now?) is copying the
folder "boost" onto the path, to where deque, string and many other
suspiciously STL-like files live, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual
Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\Include.

Both entries work (after putting the space between identifier and
semicolon *smile*); my use of the token "vc7" was an inference from
the Boost.Jam documentation, "Building Boost.Jam" section, first
table of "The supported toolsets ..." after the fifth paragraph,
where (hypertext)_msvc_ is associated with VC++6.x, and (hypertext)
_vc7_ is associated with VC++7.x. Hmm, I see the BBv2 docs said I
should "open the user-config.jam file and follow the instructions
there," namely, "# Uncomment relevant parts to suite your local
configuration and preferences" which would have resulted in

using msvc ;

which would have worked. My bad.

Thank you both for your help!
