I have tried to build with VC-15.9 (yesterday's update) and I hit the

don't know how to make <p/C:/boost>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
<pc:\boost-build\boost\bin.v2\standalone\msvc\msvc-15.9> for
lack of <p/C:/boost>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
common.mkdir c:\boost-build\boost

after which everything fails of course, which is unsurprising as
vcvarsall.bat is now located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual

I don't know why, how or what, but that's what I see. b2 builds, but that's
because I'm building from a dev-prompt.

Clang also fails [using lld-link.exe] as apparently Peter's fixes are not
merged to master [yet]. I presume the above issue will rear its head as
well, after that as this appears to be unrelated to boost.
