explicitly calling evc8.bat in the command prompt, *then* the command line,

bjam link=static ^
--with-system ^
toolset=msvc-8.0~wm5~slport5.2 ^
stdlib=stlport ^
--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?
