No. bootstrap has nothing to do with this.

That should override any automatic toolset detection.

You can also put
using msvc ;
in project-config.jam or user-config.jam

Can someone point me to the places in the jamfiles I'm going to need to change to clue boost in that it ought to compile arm for win8? I've got all the addons to MSVC that you need, we compile windows 8 arm and apollo all the time here. I just need to get boost clued in that it should change a few flags.
