Ahh, yes to #1, no to #2.

The darwin-tools.jam targets the Apple modified GCC that they distribute by
various names, currently XTools. That variant has additional options and
different functionality.

It is possible to use a bare GCC in MacOSX for which you would use the
regular gcc-tools. But because the XTools compiler is only a GCC variant it's
also possible to use the darwin-tools with a bare GCC.
