OK fixed... but I really hate the inability of the Windows ECHO to output a
blank line :-(

In the process I was trying to run the generator_test, directly as I don't
have Python on my Windows partition. And I decided I really didn't wan't to
setup the user-config.jam file. I also miss the -sTOOLS=.. ability to
init/specify the toolset. So I attempted to add a utility option "--tool
<toolset> <options>*", but ran into one problem. The build system is not
loaded at the time the options are parsed.

So this brings up some questions:

1. Do we wan't to support options that need the build system loaded?
2. If yes, where and/or how do we handle such a thing?
