I can't reproduce your problem. Here's what I tried:

- Download boost_1_54_0.7z from
- unzip to boost_1_54_0/

>cd boost_1_54_0

Building Boost.Build engine

Bootstrapping is done. To build, run:


To adjust configuration, edit 'project-config.jam'.
Further information:

    - Command line help:
    .\b2 --help

    - Getting started guide:

    - Boost.Build documentation:

boost_1_54_0>b2 toolset=msvc-11.0 --build-type=complete architecture=x86
--stagedir=stage\lib\x32 stage
Performing configuration checks
...found 46783 targets...

common.mkdir stage

boost_1_54_0>b2 toolset=msvc-11.0 --build-type=complete architecture=x86
address-model=64 --stagedir=stage\lib\x64 stage
...found 46827 targets...
...updating 5259 targets...

There are a few things that might help track this down:
a) run b2 with --debug-configuration
b) apply the attached patch, which should give more
   context for the error.
