Boost :

auto_link looks good but I tripped on this because it needs a prior

#include <boost/config.hpp> // for BOOST_MSVC definition

and the "not all defined" clause does not contain a #error message to give some
clue that no #pragma ... is going to happen :-(

but looks promising otherwise.

I am also unclear if you are suggesting a 'standard' location for the library

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\lib aka


Also I got a file rather strangely called:


Starting with lib_ rather than lib might be more readable?

BOOST_LIB_PREFIX: "lib" for static libraries otherwise ""

I don't see why static libraries are prefixed? MS convention?
