Thanks, that helped me spot the problem: I'd got the wrong MSVC versions
specified. I need:

using msvc : 8.0express ;
using msvc : 7.1 ;
using msvc : 6.0 ;

I didn't realize that the MSVC 8 express compiler was a different toolset to
the standard one. Also, VC 6.0 sp5 is labelled vc6.5 with BBV1, and 6.0 on
