The syntax is not correct, the right one is:

: <toolset>intel,<toolset-intel:platform>linux:<cxxflags>TEST

but that does not work either, due to bugfix I've made yesterday -- it made
<toolset>intel-linux work, but broke this case. I hope I've fixed this now.

I've verified that this works after my fixes. Could you update and try again?
The fix is in revision 1.56 of build/feature.jam and 1.46 of

Thanks for testing this!
