That's a really hard question. Nothing prevents 'intel.jam' from having
conditional logic which does different things depending on platform. Of
course, that would prevent doing really fancy things like using both native
linux intel compiler and windows version under wine.

But such complexities might never arise. A bigger problem is that "bin/intel"
might refer to two really different toolset. Maybe, the simplest solution:
have 'intel-linux' and 'intel-win', is also the best one?
