I am trying to install the boost libraries on my Win32 box
but am running into an inconsistency. I am following the
instructions provided with the boost 1.32.0 release and
typing the following command in a command window after running
the vcvars32.bat file:

bjam "sTOOLS=vc7" install.

Note that since I have visual studio .NET version 7.0 (not 2003)
I am using vc7 rather than vc_7-1. However the libraries created
by the above command all have the string "vc71" embedded in them.
My MSVC projects complain that they are unable to find the boost
libraries since they are being told (not sure how) to look for
files with the string "vc7_" embedded in the library name.

Any ideas what could be going wrong. I tried removing my boost
installation libraries and issueing the bjam command once again,
but there was no change..
