Boost-Build :

I've noticed that if I specify
using gcc
in user-config then Boost attempts to use gcc even if
I specify darwin on the command line, so
bjam release toolset=darwin
produces errors as shown below. However, if I specify
"using darwin" in user-config.jam, then
bjam release toolset=gcc
works correctly when I am on a linux machine.

Its minor of course, but the inconsistency can be a
slight annoyance when rapidly going back and forth
between platforms to test changes.

This is
Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 9.1)
Boost.Jam 03.01.08

(note: user-config.jam says "using gcc")
$ bjam release toolset=darwin
