Per the "Problems with VC14 and MSPDB140.DLL" thread, I'm seeing issues
building msvc-14.0 64-bit. I and others on that thread consider this bug a
show stopper as it will be a problem for any user building msvc-14.0/64
following the instructions on the getting started guide.

Everything else looks good.

toolset arch compile Link Execute
msvc-8.0 32 X X X
msvc-8.0 64 X X X
msvc-9.0 32 X X X
msvc-9.0 64 X X X
msvc-10.0 32 X X X
msvc-10.0 64 X X X
msvc-11.0 32 X X X
msvc-11.0 64 X X X
msvc-12.0 32 X X X
msvc-12.0 64 X X X
msvc-14.0 32 X X X
msvc-14.0 32 FAIL X X

Compile means that the b2 command completed without errors
Install means that the installers for the respective version were generated
Link means that visual studio was able to link a sample executable to a
library (libboost_thread-vcXXX-mt[-gd]-1_XX.lib) generated
Execute means that the linked program executed without errors.
