The same command in the same directory? The error basically means that:
1. Boost.Build could not find the compiler at the location you provided
2. It failed to report that politely.

The issue (2) is fixed in SVN HEAD, but I don't see what can cause (1) to
happen at random -- except a failing hard drive. Can you run with
--debug-configuration option and post the output?
