The 'cl' is the Microsoft compiler that Boost is unable to find. If you type
cl at that same command prompt, you should find that you get the same error.

Most compilers have a way of making themselves available. With Microsoft you
need to use a command prompt window that has being properly configured. Try
selecting ones of those available from the Windows Start menu under Microsoft
Visual Studio 2013 -> Visual Studio Tools and try building Boost again.
