Did you add "using gcc ; " in user-config.jam, or in test-config.jam?

Victor is doing that to V2/msvc and that's rather helpful. What systems can
you run tests at?

Did you look at the patch? ;-) It touches every single line, so it's very hard
to tell what you did modify. I guess you (or your editor), modified line
ending for the file. But anyway, since I did not modified the files recently,
it applies OK. I plan to apply the patch tomorrow.
