Yes. The darwin.jam support the Xcode Apple GCC compilers, which is
decidedly different than the stock GNU GCC compilers on MacOSX.

If you are using *only* Xcode only use the darwin toolset.

It does, and it automatically detects which ones you have. But you have
more SDKs than is usual. I haven't heard of anyone still mucking about
with 10.1. Heck, I don't even know where you can download the thing.
