I completely forgot to explain why your invocation was wrong.
Your call did not set the <address-model> property, so it built with the
default (32-bit) address-model, which resulted in 32-bit libraries.

The fun part is when you try to link libraries of the wrong bitness in
MSVC, it just silently ignores any symbols of the wrong bitness, so
while it finds and tries to link to the library, none of the symbols
satisfy the constraints.

This should be fixed if you invoke b2 properly.
