I presume the question is actually how to have different fortran compilers? I
think the solution is to have a new feature, say 'fortran-compiler'. You
would pass the name of the compiler to the 'init' rule of f.jam, something

using f : g77 : ... ;
using f : gfortran : ...

and then will be able to specify the desired compiler in the build request.
It's possible to have separate compiler version as well.

You could take a look at borland.jam, as a simple example of toolset file
which supports different installations.
