I'd like to request that we roll a 1_61_0_b2 without this change. The
directory structure is a big part of what we need to verify and this throws
off the build system that I've had running.

Other than that, everything seems to work correctly:

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 64 X 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.
