It was done deliberately that way, because historically we've only had one
Borland toolset, so the names were not versioned.

What we really need to do before the next major release, is figure out how
to get the compiler version into bjam so that the name mangling doesn't
depend upon the toolset name, that way the bjam names and the auto_link
names could always be in synch, Rene?
