There are no official testers running clang-cl, as far as I can see:

However, CI configs for many libraries do include clang-cl jobs. So the
support is each library maintainer's initiative.

You can try filing PRs improving support for clang-cl to given libraries.

Older versions of clang-cl were too broken to be supported, so don't
expect those to work. And probably don't bother creating PRs adding
workarounds for them. Newer versions seem to be better, though.

BOOST_MSVC is not supposed to be defined for clang-cl.
