There is just boost/next_prior.hpp, so no need to move it, unless we
also want to clean up the top-level include directory.

I will move it from Utility to Iterator after 1.65 is out. I don't think
this is urgent and I'd rather not cause an unnecessary disruption now.
Besides, the file is different in develop and master because develop
depends on a new feature in Config that has not been merged yet.
