This ist Step 3.2: Add the MinGW bin folder to the PATH.
Should be enough.

this is a msvc-10 dll. Seems you build bjam with msvc.

Patching build.bat is unnessary. You should be able to just invoke ".
\build.bat gcc" and even "bootstrap.bat gcc" from the main directory.

And another bug is "bjam --toolset=gcc" in 3.5, this should simply be "bjam
gcc" (or "bjam toolset=gcc").

For further diagnostic please state the exact boost version and provide more
compiler output next time.
