I was the one who split off como-win32 into a separate toolset.

Because the Comeau uses different backends on different platforms, there is
a lot of variation between the UNIX and Windows versions. I was afraid in
making changes for Windows that I would break the UNIX version. The
como-win32 toolset is still very much a work-in-progress. While it is
basically working, issues like debugging are just starting to be addressed.
I think we should continue to keep the toolsets separate for now.
