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 .MT $(cpu-conditions) : $(manifest-tool) -nologo ;


toolset.flags .MT $(cpu-conditions) :
$(setup-$(c))$(manifest-tool) -nologo ;

which loads the environment before executing the command.
