Boost is gone. No reason to keep this open.

r3931 moves the "reference" compiler to the VS2015 community edition.

This is mostly now in place. Keeping the task open until the requirements for Boost have been completely removed, as the Boost libraries are tied to compiler versions.

The build system currently expects use of Visual Studio 2010 to compile the C++, C# and VB components. Users may prefer to use a more recent version of the compilier, if that is what they have installed. The build system should be a bit more flexible, and either allow the user to specify the compiler version they want to use, or automatically use the most up-to-date installed version.

The recent release of the (free) Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition is the trigger for this consideration.
