Subject: [Boost-build] msvc: building executables broken?

Building executables with msvc (2008 Express) on Windows XP seems broken
at least when running from a shell without the environment setup. There
is a problem with finding mt:
'mt' is not recognized as an internal or external command
which can be fixed by changing line 871 of msvc.jam from:
toolset.flags msvc.link .MT $(cpu-conditions) : $(manifest-tool) -nologo ;
toolset.flags msvc.link .MT $(cpu-conditions) :
$(setup-$(c))$(manifest-tool) -nologo ;
which loads the environment before executing the command.
