We (the Microsoft C++ team) use the MySQL project as part of our "Real world code" tests. MySql failed to build due to error C2039: 'value': is not a member of 'boost::proto' with MSVC on windows. It can be reproduced on latest version.Could you please help take a look at this? Thanks in advance!

497>C:\boost_1_68_0\x64\boost_1_70_0\boost/proto/generate.hpp(239): error C2039: 'value': is not a member of 'boost::proto' (compiling source file D:\MySQL\src\sql\auth\sql_authorization.cc) [D:\MySQL\build_x64\sql\sql_main.vcxproj]

How to repeat:
1.git clone -b 8.0 https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server.git D:\MySQL\src
2.mkdir build_x64 && pushd build_x64
3.cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" -DCMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION=10.0.17134.0 -DDOWNLOAD_BOOST=1 -DWITH_BOOST=C:\boost_1_68_0\x64 ..\src
4.msbuild /p:Configuration=Release;Platform=x64 build_x64\MySQL.sln /t:Rebuild /m /p:BuildInParallel=true

Hi, we are struggling to repeat this failure. When looking at the bug-description we wonder if there might be a problem with your BOOST installation?

I guess this is the same issues as https://github.com/boostorg/proto/issues/18 ?

Fixed in 8.0.19.

Boost compilation failed under Visual Studio due to a Boost
workaround for a VC++ 2013 bug that has since been fixed. The
workaround is now patched for Boost compilation with MySQL.
