Yes that one helps also (total improvement with all your changes is ~4x):

$ time Tools/boost-build/bin/b2.exe all msvc -j8
root: c:\, c:
root: h:\, h:
root: h:\, h:
root: h:\, h:
root: c:\, c:
...found 40506 targets...

real 0m26.048s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.047s

What is the root stuff about? Did you accidentally leave some debug code in?
