I can build clang using VC++ 10 but whether this is stable, or fails,
using Boost libraries, because it has to rely on MS''s non C++ standard
headers and isms, and does not support it, I do not know.

Evidently clang can be built for MingW, and I will be trying that shortly.

Maybe some clang person, like Doug Gregor, knows the state of clang,
with Boost, under Windows. I will ask in their NG.
