I build all our Boost libs in our company using the following batch
file. Iostreams is built using Zlib and Bzip2:

@REM build bjam
@call bootstrap.bat

@REM BZIP2 files
set NO_BZIP2=0
set BZIP2_INCLUDE=H:\bzip2-1.0.6\
set BZIP2_SOURCE=H:\bzip2-1.0.6\

@REM ZLIB files
set NO_ZLIB=0
set ZLIB_INCLUDE=H:\zlib-1.2.7\
set ZLIB_SOURCE=H:\zlib-1.2.7\

@REM explicitly enable compression

@REM the actual call to boost build
b2 -j 8 --toolset=msvc-10.0 address-model=32 --build-type=complete stage
mkdir stage\Win32\
move stage\lib\* stage\Win32\
b2 -j 8 --toolset=msvc-10.0 address-model=64 --build-type=complete stage
mkdir stage\Win64\
move stage\lib\* stage\Win64\
