I might need some help, indeed. Looking at -d+12 logs, I see this:

-> 1 Name: <pC:\Boost\lib>boost_filesystem-vc90-mt-1_36.dll^
       Loc: C:\Boost\lib\boost_filesystem-vc90-mt-1_36.dll^

which is just fine, and should work. So maybe, it's the core build engine that's buggy. But I also see

-> 3 Name: <pC:\libs\Boost_1360_x86\boost\bin.v2\libs\filesystem\build\msvc-9.0\release\address-model-32\architecture-x86\threading-multi>boost_filesystem-vc90-mt-1_36.lib (interna

which seems fairly weird -- I don't see why import library would depend on DLL, nor why
would it be marked NOTFILE.

Can you check if similar anomaly happens on small case, such as the libraries example,
under msvc?
