Subject: [boost] [predef] Announce: Build time configuration for Predef defs.

Following on the concept by Peter Dimov of using the BBv2 config feature
combined with tests I'm pleased to announce that Predef now has a similar

In the develop branch of Predef you can now do the following:

  import ../libs/predef/check/predef : require : predef-require ;
  run macos_only_test.cpp : : : [ predef-require "BOOST_OS_MACOS" ] ;
  run vc15_only_test.cpp : : : [ predef-require "BOOST_COMP_MSVC >= 15.0.0"
] ;

The expression(s) to check can use any of the definitions that Predef has.
The general for is: "<DEF> <OP> <VERSION>". Where <OP> is any of the usual
C/C++ relational operators. And <VERSION> is a partial or complete triplet
of integers. You can specify multiple checked expressions that are all
required. Also part of this is a more general "check" rule that allows for
custom build requirements. For example:

  import ../libs/predef/check/predef : require check : predef-require
predef-check ;
  run macos_only_test.cpp : : : [ predef-require "BOOST_OS_MACOS" ] ;
  run vc15_only_test.cpp : : : [ predef-check "BOOST_COMP_MSVC >= 15.0.0" :
<define>THIS_IS_MSVC : <build>no ] ;

I'll put this into master as soon as I have appropriate documentation.
