Ahhhh. So what's happening is *all* of the toolsets are loaded up
front, and the variations in the build process are dependent on the
TOOLS= argument on the command line.

Thanks very much, but this leads to another problem. For the
Playstation 2, there are actually *2* processors in the box (EE and
IOP), and although the instruction sets are (more or less) the same,
include paths and libraries are different between the two. Aside: The
binary file extensions are different, too: .ELF for the EE, and .IRX
for the IOP.

So some binaries need to be built for the EE, and some for the IOP. It
seems that creating a new toolset for the IOP side might not be the
right approach, because then e.g. a top-level
bjam -sTOOLS="snps2ee snps2iop"

will build both binaries for all subprojects, and that's not what we

What would be the right approach to for this?

Again, thanks in advance...
