Ah, here's what causes it:

: SHARED_LIB IMPORT_LIB RSP : <toolset>msvc ;

when we try to figure out which target types can be converted into IMPORT_LIB,
we find this generator which has IMPORT_LIB in source types, so we recurse
infinitely and the error you get is just stack overflow.

I've just committed a fix, which works on Lunix/gcc and NT/borland. Could you
check that msvc is OK, too?
