attached you find a patch to add the clang toolset for windows.

clang_win.patch : adds the clang win toolset and passes the Z7 flag to
the compiler. I think this version should be applied as clang developers
strive to be compatible with msvc. To workaround the Z7 bug someone can
pass at the command line: debug-store=database

clang_win_ignore_z7.patch : Only filters the debug-store<object> / Z7
command line. Probably not needed.

common_clang_win.patch : add the clang-win name for mangling. I also
included the visual studio version. I think it should not be left out
like with the intel compiler. In the end it generates the toolset name
with e.g. clang 3.4 and visual stuadio 2010: clang-win3_4_vc10

There are two options to setup the toolset in user-confing.jam:
1. if clang-cl is found in path:
using clang : 3.4 : : <compatibility>vc10

2. Full command line for clang-cl:
using clang : 3.4 : C:\MyInstallationPath\clang-cl.exe :
<compatibility>vc10 ;

Hope this helps to test boost with the clang toolset.
At the moment it relies on the VS*COMNTOOLS variable to look up the
vcvarsall.bat file. I haven't figured out how to extract the path from
the msvc.jam file. Perhaps someone else can help with it.
Also the auto-link header need to be changed. I can provide a patch for
it when it is clear how the boost libs will be named. This depends if
the visual studio version is included or not in the library name.
