Yep, I've investigated further and I'm even more confused: the -Qvc8 option
appears to be coming from my Intel-9 configuration setup rather than bjam.
So my Intel-9 setup *should* be using MSVC-8 as it's base after all. That
error message about -manifest not being recognised was throwing me.

The weird thing is, if I extract the commands bjam is using and paste them
into the console then everything links without error! So I'm stumped again
:-( I don't suppose there are any environment variables or other "hidden"
things that bjam is setting are there?

Thanks, John.
