I'm trying to build Boost 1.30.2 on a Linux system.

I need to specify a different compiler name than just "gcc" and "g++"
(I'm using TOOLS=gcc). According to the gcc toolset webpage, I should
be able to set GCC and GXX on the jam line. But, it doesn't work:

$ cd /home/psmith/boost-1.30.2/tools/build/jam_src
$ ./ gcc

$ cd /home/psmith/boost-1.30.2
$ ./tools/build/jam_src/bin.linuxx86/bjam -d2 -j2 \
-sBOOST_ROOT=/home/psmith/boost-1.30.2 \
-sTOOLS=gcc \
-sGCC=i686-unknown-linux-gnu-3.2.3-gcc \

Shows me:


g++ -c -Wall -ftemplate-depth-100 -DBOOST_REGEX_NO_LIB=1
-DBOOST_REGEX_STATIC_LINK=1 -g -O0 -fno-inline -I"libs/regex/build"
-I"/tmp/portage/boost-1.30.2/work/boost-1.30.2" -o


It is continuing to use the old compiler names.

What am I doing wrong? :-(
