Hi Volodya,

Is toolset gcc-nocygwin supported in Boost.Build v2? There is a thread
about it for Boost.Build v1, which happened around 1 year ago. But I
don't see any discussion about it centered on v2. Perhaps it has turned
into a compile/link flag, per your earlier advice in this thread.

When I insert statement "using gcc-nocygwin ;" in user-config.jam, bjam
fails. It complains that it can't find gnu-nocygwin.jam

This fails in a way similar to the above failure.

I'll use the compile/link flags for now.

Indeed. Thanks.
