It's encoded in the toolset name -- intel-win32-7.1-vc6.

Put on the TODO list.

For the purpose of testing, it doesn't matter whether you have the whole tree
on the branch, or just a subset of it. As long as it's only the test and config
libraries that are being tested on that branch, we can afford it.

We remove all the sources and do a full checkout on every cycle, so whatever
problems you might have, they are not caused by a missing directory, if the
latter is in the CVS, of course.
