I've just approved this change:  and after confirmtaion from Norbert
that our CI infra was extended to support MSVC 2015, I will merge it.
How is the next LibreOffice release (5.2?) supposed to be built after
this change was merged, when FB cannot be built on MSVC 2015 toolchain?
And other releases during this 1 year (too optimistic assumption for
me, but still)?
@Christian, any comments on that from your side?
