Mat and I had talked about this offlist (we just forgot to CC the list), and the
conclusion is this:

1. We've no idea why the CRT in winsxs is not found, despite having exactly the requested
public token and version. I don't know what this 'none_96748342450f6aa2' prefix is supposed
to mean and how it could affect things.

2. It's not a Boost.Build problem. If one creates a 64-bit console project in IDE, with otherwise
default settings, it fails to run.

3. The only known fix is to reinstall Visual Studio -- which fixed the problem for Mat.
