That is certainly a poor default choice for the borland compiler. The
'typical' borland user will be using the shipped VCL class library, and
this is requires MT builds. Single-threaded is an exceptional
condition, rather than the norm, on this platform.

If MT builds are not to be global defaults, could we at least patch the
jam files to use multithreading on Borland?
