This guide actually gets me as far as bjam trying to compile things, but there
must be more to it. My user-config.jam now says:

using msvc : 8.0 ;
using msvc : 7.1 ;
using msvc : 6.5 ;
using gcc : : c:/local/mingw/bin/gcc.exe ;
using python : 2.5 : c:/local/python25 ;
using borland : 5.8.2 ;

But the include paths for MSVC 8.0 aren't being picked up, so the compiler
complains that it can't find the standard library headers.

I have the following environment variables set, which used to work the BBv1:

set path=($path:q c:/local/python25 c:/local/mingw/bin)
setenv PYTHON_ROOT c:/local/python25
setenv MSVC_ROOT "c:/progra~1/micros~3/vc98"
setenv VC71_ROOT "c:/local/vc71"
setenv VC80_ROOT "c:/progra~1/MID05A~1/vc"
setenv VS80COMNTOOLS "c:/progra~1/MID05A~1/Common7/Tools/"
setenv INCLUDE "c:/mssdk/include"
setenv LIB "c:/mssdk/lib"
setenv BUILD "release"
unsetenv MSVCDir

Why don't these work the BBv2? Is there a way to get the same effect with BBv2?
