I don't think anything has changed in Boost.Build that would
affect this. Have you checked your msvc installation? I
would suggest checking whether msvc-setup.bat is out-dated,
but you're running a clean build here, right?

Can you try forcing the original setup scripts:

  using msvc : 14.0 : : <rewrite-setup-scripts>off ;
