Sorry for confusion. What I exactly mean is: we really don't work on mingw.
This is really bad, we used to work there, but a change intended to make
gcc.jam work on Solaris broken mingw, which I did not notice :-(

So, I really wonder if we should have a mechanism to tell which gcc variant is
being used -- cygwin, mingw, solaris, or somethng else.

But first of all, I really don't understand why mingw does not work. I've just
checked, and the linker seems to accept "-h soname" command line option. Do
you have an idea what's going on?
