Hi All,

I am using the current version of bjam built with VC7.1 and the v2 toolsets,
running them via the bash shell. When I attempt to invoke boostbook, I get
an error about being unable to locate file "reference.xsl". I have managed
to track this down to a problem with the paths passed to xsltproc.

The problem is that the cygwin tools expect cygwin/unix style paths and
these aren't produced because v2/util/path.jam is setting os to NT. I can
fix the above problem by explicitly modifying path.jam:23 to:

os = CYGWIN ;

Ideally, it would be nice to control the os configuration that a toolset
uses, e.g.:

using xsltproc : <os>CYGWIN ;
using boostbook : <os>CYGWIN ;
