lib win_ws2_32 : : <file>$(PLATFORM_SDK_LIB)/WS2_32.lib ;

works for me but

lib win_ws2_32 : : <file>$(PLATFORM_SDK_LIB)/WS2_32.Lib ;

does not. Note the capital L in extension of the filename. The file is
actually saved in the filesystem with a capital L. The error message is

error: target { /C:/Program Files/Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows
Server 2003 R2/Lib/WS2_32.Lib. } has no type

I'm using boost build from the latest svn on boost trunk
