Using the attached batch file (below) to make Boost 1.55 beta 1 -  I did NOT have success building Boost 1.55b1 with the release version of VS2013.  I was however on a different PC able to build Boost with successfully with this batch file using VS2012.  Others have reported successful builds using VS2013 am I missing something new?
