I'm not sure this is syntax error. I believe that's the way it used to work:
using gcc : 3.3 g++3.3 ;
is the syntax accepted now (both before and after the change we talk about).
If I changed the rule as you suggest, one would have to use:
using gcc : 3.3 : g++3.3 ;
Actually, in another thread I've asked if this change in syntax should be
done, for uniformity, and I think I'll make the change very soon...
