This should be

using msvc : : $(VC_ROOT) ;

Hmm... that one is pretty old already. I should have released a new version
long ago, but did not manage.

What's the error message in this case?

I think very few. The most important, probably, is that we've changed
initialisation syntax for some toolsets -- including msvc, to make it
consistent across all the toolsets we have.
