I downloaded this: boost_1_49_0

I typed bootstrap gcc
Then I typed b2
I got several error messages:
'cl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

I guess it is safe to say Mingw is simply not supported anymore?

Looks like I need to get windows platform sdk?  As I was told by someone in a different email.

The boost version is not standalone.
It's intended to be copied over older
Boost distributions.  The current release
of Boost includes Boost.Asio.

Because this is Boost.Build, not Boost.
