Just like other tools (cl.exe, rc.exe, mild.exe) in the MSVC toolset
mc.exe requires vcvars32.bat to be executed. Otherwise it will not be
found because normally it is not in the path. This seems to be a more
general problem of the msvc toolset. All tools in it depend on
vcvars32.bat. Without this dependency rc, mc and midl can be safely
moved out of the toolset.
