Please ignore. I see the same change has already been made.

Subject: [boost] auto_link.hpp update for Visual Studio 2019 GA release

Building boost with the GA release of Visual Studio 2019 names the outputs with v142 (which matches what VS 2019 names its build tools). But auto_link.hpp causes the linker to look for files named with v141. I changed auto_link.hpp to:

# elif defined(BOOST_MSVC) && (BOOST_MSVC < 1910)

     // vc14:
# define BOOST_LIB_TOOLSET "vc140"

# elif defined(BOOST_MSVC) && (BOOST_MSVC < 1920)

     // vc14.1:
# define BOOST_LIB_TOOLSET "vc141"

# elif defined(BOOST_MSVC)

     // vc14.2:
# define BOOST_LIB_TOOLSET "vc142"

This corrected the linker errors on my machine.

I'm happy to submit this properly but thought I'd check it with folks here first.
