Your changes look good to me, except:

1. I'm not sure that BCCDir is an appropriate analogue to MSVCDir.
MSVCDir is set up by the Microsoft-supplied script VCVARS32.BAT, which
sets up environment variables for using the VC++ toolset. The point of
the check in msvc-tools.jam is to use the predefined environment
variables if they're already set up for us.

2. You should eliminate the use of BCC_COMPILER and BCC_LIBRARIAN
variables. The point of using them for the other toolset is that there
are other compilers (such as intel-win32) which use the same toolset
interface with different tool names.

3. There should be no need for special treatment of bcc56 in
features.jam, since the bcc56 toolset is based on the borland one.
