Subject: [boost] Building Boost 1.69 with Visual Studio 1.69

Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself given the recent topic about picking a version number for the latest MSVC toolset but I'm having trouble building boost 1.69 with Visual Studio 2019 preview. I blindly assumed the toolset was 14.20 (given the directory where cl.exe is found). Letting b2 determine the version yields vc141 in the lib names. Trying to force 142 with:

using msvc : 14.2 : <path to cl.exe> ;

in project-config.jam yields errors about unescaped characters.

Suggestions welcomed.
