I took a closer look at the problem and it is because the python version
installed on the test machine is for win64-x64 (AMD64). That explains why
all win32 versions failed but win64 versions worked. I tried to install
win32-python side-by-side but it would not allow me (if I uninstall the
64-bit version and install the 32-bit version then I guess the 64-bit
versions will fail). Looks like we cannot test both 32-bit and 64-bit of
python library on the same machine. I can change the toolset name to
something other than msvc-8.0 so it can be marked as expected failures. But
the more important issue is that the current toolset naming convention
probably should include platform also.
