The problem is that the VS2008 installation, which is msvc-9.0, did not
place a cl.exe in its "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
9.0\VC\bin" directory. Instead it placed its cl.exe for x86 in its
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\x86_amd64"
directory and placed its cl.exe for x64 in its "C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\amd64" directory.
Therefore since msvc.jam is using the finding of the cl.exe in vc/bin
directory as an indication of the presence of an msvc toolset, it does
not find the msvc-9.0 toolset.
