[cctbxbb] testing newer versions of boost

I'm testing newer versions of boost than 1.70 currently distributed with 
CCTBX. I can't remember if I have to do something special other than 
unpacking the zip file, say boost_1_74_0.zip, that I download from 
boost.org and put it into the modules directory for my cctbx build. But 
I get several errors during build like:

error C2491: 'boost::filesystem::codecvt_error_category': definition of 
dllimport function not allowed

I'm have tried with the VS2015, VS2017 and the VS2019 compiler and they 
all complain. So I'm wondering if there are some other magic invocations 
that have to be done before building with a new version of boost.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
