Does the MSVC library ABI change depending on whether "secure STL" has
been enabled? If not, I'd suggest adding a build option but not adding
yet another runtime tag.

Linking to boost libraries has already become tag soup -- try writing a
portable configure script to figure out which name mangling was installed
on a user's machine... Its been done, but it runs 2^n slower than simply
checking whether '$CXX -l<name>...' succeeds.
