Me neither, but Microsoft assures me that it's neccessary to do it
when I build DLLs. I have no idea why it should be failing. The
command I was given by Microsoft supposedly extracts the manifest from
the DLL and then processes it somehow.

Hum, yeah it does. Is this Boost.Build v1 or v2?
Are you running the build under the NT command prompt or under cygwin?
Can you show the command that triggers the error above? It should
follow the error in your bjam output.
