We use the following flag when building boost:

where "c:\path\to\zlib" is the directory containing the files extracted
from the zlib archive.

The complete command line for reference (with bzip2 as well):

b2 -a -q -j8 address-model=64 link=static threading=multi
runtime-link=shared variant=release --with-iostreams
-sBZIP2_SOURCE=c:\path\to\bzip2 -sZLIB_SOURCE=c:\path\to\zlib stage
