There are 2 tutorials, but they don't address this issue.

The best documentation regarding your problem I found is

You have to go to Boost root and run the following command to build the

bjam -sTOOLS=vc-7_1 --with-filesystem -sBUILD="<runtime-link>static
<runtime-threading>single debug" install

If you don't have bjam.exe you can compile it yourself by running
build.bat or download a precompiled version from Boost Sourceforge
download page

BTW Boost 1.33 was released recently, so you'd better try 1.33.
