If my understanding is correct, even if the default layout changed, the previous layout is still there so you can use the "--layout=<layout>" option of Boost 1.66's b2,
which I just realized is not documented online yet, so just look at the help info. I'm not totally sure but I think you need "versioned" layout to get the previous layout.

Well, sadly not. I always specify the layout manually for the different platforms and for Windows I normally choose "versioned" so that I get the desired scheme. Since 1.66 ,"versioned" yields this different result. 

Anyway, manually renaming the files and disabling all autolinking did the trick and I can now use stock CMake again to locate the libraries. As long as I am fully static that is.

Thanks everyone!
