Sadly you have to turn it off if your using a toolset that produces a
different name from the auto-link header - generally this is an Intel
toolset problem, where we have both "versioned" and "unversioned" toolset
names. The autolink header can do one or the other but not both (it's not
psychic!), we really need some consistency here, but no one seems to be
interested in systematising the toolset names :-(
