      Description

      See build:

      https://ci.appveyor.com/project/ApacheSoftwareFoundation/thrift/build/1.0.0-dev.1232

      CMake Error at C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindBoost.cmake:912 (list):
        Syntax error in cmake code at
          C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindBoost.cmake:912
        when parsing string
          C:\Libraries\boost_1_54_0/lib${_arch_suffix}-msvc-10.0
        Invalid character escape '\L'.
      Call Stack (most recent call first):
        C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindBoost.cmake:1380 (_Boost_UPDATE_WINDOWS_LIBRARY_SEARCH_DIRS_WITH_PREBUILT_PATHS)
        build/cmake/DefineOptions.cmake:53 (find_package)
        CMakeLists.txt:52 (include)
      

      This happens when cmake is updated and the boost path string is not using forward slashes (even on Windows).
