Why this complexity ? The answer you are referring above suggests a
rather simple solution: move the config-generating logic into a .cmd
file and execute that.
Much simpler and efficient than installing yet another package on each run !
And it works: :-)

(That being said, I see no reason to change what's already working now:
Steven's suggestion to use <include> and <library-path> directly when
invoking `b2`. But it's certainly useful to keep in mind if ever we need
a more complex config file in the future.)
