The problem is a deeper one with subfeatures: you can't declare the
same subfeature twice, even if it's specific. msvc.jam and gcc.jam
were both trying to declare the "version" subfeature.

I think I need to do a little bit of redesign in the
feature/subfeature system, but this was a more expedient route to
getting something working.
