Can you please post the exact command you're using to build with, and
a few of the error messages?

It's fine to build bjam with MSVC as long as you're using it from a
windows command-prompt. If you intend to build from a Cygwin bash
command-prompt, you need to build bjam from within Cygwin.
That said, I'm not sure why everyone seems to want to rebuild bjam
when they could download prebuilt binaries.
