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

#if (defined(BOOST_MSVC))

for those whose preferences are for strictness'.
