Add support for winsdk 6.1.6000 to Boost.Build.v2

Reported by: ryan.gallagher@… Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: Boost 1.36.0 Component: build
Version: Boost 1.34.1 Severity: Problem

Description

My company uses winsdk 6.1.6000 which basically has the same compiler version as a regular vc8.0 release. I had to modify the build system slightly to get it to work. This is a change I did awhile back to 1.34.1, and looking at the patch it is not clear if it can be applied directly or not (or even that it was a single patch). Sorry for this, but it's a starting point.

absorbed quite a bit of flavor.

Is the patch still relevant? If so, can you send it as unified diff (which is the default format of svn and git, and "diff -u" if using the diff tool directly)? Thanks, Volodya

Replying to vladimir_prus:

Egads, that was an ugly patch file (if can even be called that). I obviously didn't care about it too much.

No, I don't think its too important that we get it in. It appears that the platform team here uses other measures now to setup the environment rather than relying on the auto-detection in boost-build that this provided.

If you want it so others could benefit from install-less msvc then I could sync svn here and redo the patch properly, but if you'd rather just close it as "won't fix" then that's fine by me.

Closing per last comment. While auto-detection would be nice, I am rather clueless about this topic so cannot effectively review the patch.
