In fact, it seems like the "stage" rule is not to blame. In my test, if I put:

type.set-generated-target-suffix STRIPPED_EXE : <toolset>borland : "" ;

and build with borland, then STRIPPED_EXE is still build with the ".exe"
extension --- the "" suffix is not recognized. I've put a fix for this.
Can you get

overwrite your existing "type.jam" and try again? If this fixes your problem,
it would be great. Otherwise, it would be good if you send some small project
where the bug is reproducible.
