Thanks for this.

I have completely replaced I:/boost_1_37_0/ as per release and put
BOOST_BUILD_PATH to BOOST_BUILD_PATH=I:\boost_1_37_0\tools\build\v2

And things seem a lot better.

Obvious some fumbling here - but I could use a more explicit "do this, do
that" idiots guide to this setup.
When will it be possible get rid of V1 stuff?
