Thanks for this. I have given it a bit of a stress test do I can give you some

There is a minor annoyance in the error reporting. Specifying a
"user-provided-command" to "get-invocation-command" with
using gcc : distcc : XX g++ ;
gives the error
warning: toolset gcc initialization: can't find tool g++
warning: initialized from /home/michael/user-config.jam:21
which is rather confusing!

I am seeing an error when invoking "msvc" builds from
targets.jam:1157: in construct from module object(exe-target-class)@1

However since I have a very unusual cross compling (with Wine) build setup I
cannot confirm if this is a normal problem or something my setup is

A few side issues that I am look
As ever the complexity of initialising MSVC looks with all the possible setup
prefixes such as "vcvars32.bat" looks to be difficult. For my cross builds I
simply need to bypass all the normal "setup" code and have my user specified
command used directly. This command is in fact a shell script which does the
Wine setup. I am looking at a way to incorporate this without effecting the
existing logic.

As a minor point ".initialized" seems to be no longer necessary in "msvc.jam"

All the best,
