I had noticed this too... In order to have quickbook compiled only once
quickbook is always compiled with the "default" toolset. In practice, we
get an empty property-set:

local quickbook-property-set = [ property-set.empty ] ;

This is not the toolset specified on the command line but the first one
ever defined. (<variant>release is also explicitly added which may not
always be desirable...)

FWIW, you can specify the quickbook executable to be used with:

using quickbook : /path/to/quickbook ;

Anyway, there's surely room for improvement and I'm open to suggestions.
