Hi Gennadiy !

Some minor technical issues (find patch attached) :

- There's no need to declare "lib dl; " on non-NT plattforms only. That case
is handled fine by current Boost.Build.
- The usage of "" makes cross-compiling harder, please use <target-os>
- The usage of "<os>LINUX" or "<target-os>linux" implies Linux _only_, not
*nix ;-(( I've changed this to <toolset>gcc as this is used on most unices
and might even include darwin ;-). And no, there is no generic "unix" flavour
in Boost.Build right now (that I know of.)

The console-runner exe is missing a commandline help option.

Otherwise I have no need for it now, but it is great that it compiles on
Linux ;-))
