Oh... so toolset inheritance was broken the very moment when I've added
support for C compiles and gcc.compile become gcc.compile.c++! It's great
that you've found this bug and fixed it.

Applied, thanks! I've also wrote a regression test for it.

Now back to Darwin :-) Your toolset is fine, but I have a question. Should
this really be a separate toolset, or just some conditional logic in gcc.jam?
Does it make sense to use both unmodifed gcc and darwin toolset in OSX? If so,
then it's better be separate toolset. In other case, I'm not sure. What do
you think?
