  I wouldn't doubt its accuracy. It's just that I
  needed to read it two times to understand it.

  Mhmm. I re-read it. The first thing I stumbled
  over was #3, where it says:

   "The following toolsets are supported by Boost.Build.
    For information about configuring each toolset,
    click its name in the leftmost column."

  I picked mine and there was a variable name
  shown. So I copied this...

  just takes too much effort to be named custom
