Or something like that... A bit more changes and fixes in other context
under which a directory structure is assumed and most tests pass on
MSVC/Windows. Tests that fail:

rebuilds [1]
generators_test [2]
inline [2]
tag [2]
regression [3]
project_root_rule [2]
remove_requirement [1,4]
gcc_runtime [1,5]

1. Also fails on GCC/Linux
2. This is the difference of Windows generating lib*.lib and the test
expecting *.lib
3. EOL discrepancy of some sort on the expected vs. actual output
4. Removing the "threading-multi" hurts us on this test.
5. Fails on both for rather different reasons.

Another testing difference between Linux and Windows: the output of
exceptions is not inlined the same way. On Windows it seems to be
buffered, and hence looks like it comes out garbled. But it's really
just in rather different places than when the exceptions are actually
