explicitly calling evc8.bat in the command prompt, *then* the command line,
bjam link=static ^
--debug-configuration > bjam.txt
makes the build complete.
because evc8.bat pipes output to a file, after deleting the file created
by the manual run, and running the above bjam command line, I can see
that the the batch file is never called by bjam.
Any idea why the setup batch file wasn't called?
