Try downloading the prebuilt bjam executable, this is labeled on the download page. I succesfully downloaded
and built for the same platform, with the exception that my dir is
C:\boost\boost_1_33_1, as I have previous versions of boost as well.

Copy the downloaded bjam.exe to your C:\boost_1_33_1 directory, cd to
C:\boost_1_33_1 and type:

    bjam -sTOOLS=vc-7_1 stage
