All but that last one looks ok. For VC it has autodetection so you can
get away with just doing a "using msvc ;". For borland I think you need
to specify the compiler path like for the MinGW setup (unless it happens
to be in the path).

Hm, are you trying to use anything other than the built in includes for
VC8? Those look like a shell setup, are you running inside MSYS? It
shouldn't matter, I just want to make sure I know your setup :-)

There's no BUILD env var for BBv2. You'll have to specify that on the
regression command with --bjam-options="release".

What effect are you trying to get? For BBv2 the environment setup is
basically not used on Windows as it tries to detect the configuration.
Could you post what your commands look like? You can get them either
directly by doing a "bjam -n --v2" invocation. Or finding the RSP files
incide the bin build directory. And state what you think is wrong with them.
