Subject: [Boost-build] Error in installing Boost.Build

I tried to install the Boost.Build following the instruction in

Section 5.1

but during the build I get lots of errors relating to missed Python libraries of the form

call "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"x86 >nulcl /Zm800 -nologo @"bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-10.0\debug\link-static\threading-multi\object_protocol.obj.rsp"

...failed compile-c-c++ bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-10.0\debug\link-static\threading-multi\object_protocol.obj...
compile-c-c++ bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-10.0\debug\link-static\threading-multi\object_operators.obj
C:\Program Files (x86)\Boost\boost_1_55_0\boost/python/detail/wrap_python.hpp(75) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'patchlevel.h': No such file or directory

All these header files are located in an include folder which I already included in the system path but still I get the above errors. How can I configure the installer to look for these header in that folder?
