When I force explicitely the version of msvc, it solves the problem.
So thanks for your help ! It seems that in my case the logic that
try to guess the version of vc does not work. Here the path where it
is installed :

d:\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\bin

that includes the ".NET 2003\\VC7". It is the only version I have
installed on this machine. Here is the version bb and bjam I'm
using :

bjam --version
Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 10)
Boost.Jam 03.01.10

I also try with a fresh check out from CVS but it was the same
problem. Maybe something wrong with my install... If you need more
info, I'm your man.
