No way to find out Boost.Test version without running any tests

Description

As I understand, there's currently no way to find out Boost.Test version without running any tests. --build_info works only if at least one test gets to be run. But for unit test runners to work around bugs like broken --report_sink/--log_sink in Boost 1.62, it's necessary to know Boost version to construct a valid command line.

  • Milestone changed from To Be Determined to Boost 1.63.0

Added a --version to the command line: the resulting information (to std::cerr) contains the Boost version as well as other information equivalent to --build_info (and more).
