This is a welcome change and improvement, thanks for making it so clean!
This now allows me a configuration I've always wanted, which is the
ability to support the Purify tool as a version of the compiler:
using sun : purify : "purify CC" ;
allows me to use "bjam sun-purify" as an alternate toolset. Great work!

I think this is an excellent idea. Being able to specify the executable
explicity is what allows me the above, and I think there should be a
consistent initialization for all toolsets.
