Both keys are present, and point to the correct locations. The
products were installed regularly.

I fiddled some more with this and noticed that the actual command line is:

cl /Zm800 -nologo -TP /Z7 /Od /Ob0 /W4 /GR /MDd /Zc:forScope
/Zc:wchar_t /Wp64 /wd4675

The "/Ze and /Za" error appeared because both /Zc options above are
not recognized by the compiler - they are specific to MSVC 7 and
newer. I put an "ECHO $(version) ;" in msvc.jam just above the
condition that enables these options, and it seems that the compilers
are correctly recognized as "6" and "7.1". I am not sure why the /Zc
flags are still added, though. The /Wp64 and /wd4675 should also be
reserved for MSVC newer than 6.
