I don't know why it doesn't work with pre-compiled zlib since like
Norbert I uses the zlib source to build boost with.

@set ZLIB_SOURCE=D:/libs/zlib-1.2.5
b2 --build-type=complete -j2 stage
(Don't have to specify ZLIB_INCLUDE because of the default. Toolset
specified in a separate site-config.jam.)

I've had no problem even when I was running the regression tests.
