Recently I puzzled why autolink did not work for some programs.
After some stumbling about, I realised that this was because
_MSC_EXTENSIONS is a required definition (as well as MSVC).
I can't see why this should be - autolink works perfectly well
regardless of the compiler setting chosen. (But I can see why most
people will not see this - because MS require the language extensions).
But I suggest that in autolink.hpp
#if (defined(BOOST_MSVC) && defined(_MSC_EXTENSIONS))
can helpfully be replaced by
for those whose preferences are for strictness'.
