Can you compile anything with cl?

I get the same error. I can build other programs, even from the command line. This issue occurred with Boost version 1.56.0 for me. Visual Studio 2013 full install was successfully performed.

It sounds like it's not finding vcvarsall.bat. Have you tried running bootstrap from a VS command prompt? From the source, I think it's looking for %VS120COMNTOOLS%..\..\VC\VCVARSALL.bat. Can you check your environmental variables and that path?

I was getting the same error and I noticed that when I opened up a VS command prompt I got the error "ERROR: Cannot determine the location of the VS Common Tools folder." I fixed that problem by adding "c:\Windows\System32" to my PATH environment variable and now I don't get either error and can build Boost.
