The current revision of Boost.Build in develop should
be e22a75c8 (March 18)

Hmm. It looks like VS2019 isn't being autodetected.
It seems to be working for Tom's test runners.

Maybe see what you get from:

vswhere -latest -products * -requires
Microsoft.VisualStudio.Component.VC.Tools.x86.x64 -property
installationPath -version "[16.0,17.0)"

(This is how Boost.Build tries to detect VS2019.)
