Just picked these up from CVS HEAD.

The fix looks good. All three syntaxes work as expected. I'm impressed!

I made an interestingly discovery by accidentally having one to many ':'. When
the conditional properties appear in the "default-build" arguments the error
messages become very confusing.

: <toolset>intel,<toolset-intel:platform>linux:<cxxflags>TEST
I see
error: "intel,<toolset" is not a known value of feature <toolset>

While with the simpler
: <toolset-intel:platform>linux:<cxxflags>TEST
I see
error: "linux:<cxxflags>TEST" is not a known value of feature

In a future (far of) it might be interesting to generate a more meaningful
error in these cases. I will put it on my TODO list!
