Just to be clear here - I haven't changed anything yet - or even
experimented with such a change, more like thinking out loud.
However if a particular toolset readily identifies itself in the registry,
that seems to be a lot more reliable than messing with environment variables
that the user has to type in every time they want to use Boost.
BTW the Metrowerks jam-toolset already works this apparently.
