To be fair, I was referring to the Boost.Build support (to the extent there
is one) for this toolset, and not to its quality or utility. I also use it
from the VS IDE and it's pretty good for double-checking code or compiling
something which VC can't.

Nevertheless, for those who'd take the advice to use the LLVM one, here's
what I have in user-config from last time:

using clang : 4.0 :
  "C:/LLVM-4.0.0-x64/bin/clang.exe" :
  <compileflags>-fmsc-version=1910 <linkflags>-fuse-ld=lld ;
