well, "--toolset=" is wrong, should be "toolset=". But this does not matter if
youhave only one msvc installed...

The main point might be step 7 from you build instructions:
7. Create empty jamroot file in C:\boost\libs\gil
        - needs to be removed when building gil's unit tests

This jamroot will prevent Boost.Build from picking up Boost's own Jamroot in
c:\boost which has the necessary magic to force multithreaded builds on
msvc-8.0 and up.

And then only the autolink magiv does its work, as Volodya has already

Please put an empty "Jamfile" in libs\gil and it just running "bjam" might
And please try running "bootstrap.bat" instead of the manual configuration
steps for bjam in your instruction. Should work better.
