That's part of the problem I saw in the toolset. It's supposed to check if
you are in the Windows(32) platform. But later on in the build actions it
assumes that it's a Win32 platform. So if one tried to use the como toolset
on a non-Windows platform it might almost seem to work, but would fail
because of syntax errors or unkown commands to the shell.

This is because the Unix vs. Windows invocations are usually so different
that it's not worth doing a combined toolset.
