#2089: "./configure --toolset=<whatever>" doesn't work
 Reporter: dave | Owner: dgregor
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.36.0 | Component: configure
  Version: Boost 1.35.0 | Severity: Showstopper
 Keywords: |
 Please see http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.user/37346

 This was broken with BBv1 if it passed <whatever> as the Boost.Build
 toolset as well as the "building bjam" toolset name; those have always
 been distinct (but potentially overlapping) sets of names.

 This breaks the Getting Started Guide. On the other hand, if this problem
 has always been present in configure, maybe the GSG instructions never
 worked. I'm not sure who to assign this to, but since there's definitely
 a bug in the configure script, Doug wins the prize. Please feel free to
 reassign it to someone else and/or change the severity.

 FWIW, my position is that the GSG must be correct for the 1.36 release.
