Agree 100%, our default should equal the compiler default, otherwise it'll
catch too many folks out.

Really ??? I hadn't realised that, that's not good IMO, given that the
define changes the ABI away from the compilers default.

One thing I hope we can all agree on: this should be a toolset feature, and
it should change the library-name-mangling so that auto_link.hpp can select
the correct binary (it doesn't at present, but just let me know what the
correct name-mangling is and I'll fix that).
