VS2017 is not yet working with master. When building the libraries it
builds in the format "libboost_thread-vc1410-mt-1_64.lib", however the code
in config/auto_link.hpp still has a vc150 in it, meaning any time you try
to link a library you will get an error "libboost_thread-vc150-mt-1_64.lib
not found".

I think that is easy enough to fix (and drastic enough) that we should hold
the beta for it, but I defer to the release team.
